‘If Ghana will become a great nation, it starts with the youth,’ she asserted.

To meet this goal, she said, the NCCE in 2012 instituted Citizenship Day as part of its Annual Constitution Week activities. 

According to her, Citizenship Week creates the environment where people in leadership positions, professionals, academia, great and accomplished citizens who the NCCE engages as volunteers living in communities interact with and impact virtues of good citizenship and the need to uphold democratic governance to pupils of basic schools across the country.

‘Citizenship Week further aims at encouraging mentorship for pupils,’ she stated.

From a humble beginning of visiting 757 schools with 145,800 pupils participating in the Citizenship Week in 2012, the programme was extended to 4000 schools and 1,000,000 participants in 2013. Work together

She said Ghanaians must work together in ensuring continued peace, prosperity and stability in Ghana through nurturing and helping future leaders to imbibe virtues which will prepare them to be active participants in Ghana’s democratic dispensation.

Democracy, as a system of government where people form political parties and the rest of the citizens vote to choose from among them who to be President and who to be members of Parliament, has been described as a good system  because every citizen can decide on who to lead  the country and can also offer himself or herself to be voted for if they qualify. Other systems

There are other systems of government which are not democratic. Leaders in those systems  are not accountable  to their people. They do not take the views of their people into consideration but rather force their own views and decisions on them.

Democracy is, therefore, a better system if Ghana is to develop well and it is the duty of every citizen, including children, to protect it.

For Ghana’s democracy to work well, the constitution of Ghana has set up or allowed certain institutions which the NCCE refers to as the ‘pillars of our democracy’ to operate in Ghana.

There are three arms of government (Executive, Legislature and Judiciary), security services (police, immigration, Prisons and Fire), independent governance institutions (NCCE, Electoral Commission, Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice, National media commission), Media and the Chieftaincy institutions.
