Nyamekrom (E/R), October 17, GNA – Mr Ebenezer
Acheampong of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) has reminded
Ghanaians of their responsibility to protect public projects and report any
wrong doings to the appropriate authorities for action to be taken.

He said every citizen hasthe responsibility to
protect and safeguard the environment, be sanitation conscious and be actively
involved in communal labour as a way of contributing to the development of
their areas.

Mr Acheampong was speaking at a town hall
meeting organized by the Catholic Diocese of Koforidua Justice and Peace
Commission to educate residents of Nyamekrom, a community in the New Juaben
South Municipality on their rights and responsibilities, understand the local
governance system and to demand accountability to enhance development.

The exercise was organized in collaboration
with Konard Adenauer Stiftung Foundation of Germany and the New Juaben
Municipal Assembly.   The Coordinator of
the Justice and Peace Commission, Mr Patrick Acheaw Owusu urged the people to
understand that such platforms are avenues to table their concerns to the
Assemblies and know what plans the assembly has for the communities.

He said, the Catholic Church has a role not
only to build persons spiritually, but to sensitize the people to know their
responsibilities as citizens and demand accountability from duty bearers.

Mr Gideon Amoasi Ampah, who represented the
New Juaben South Municipal Chief Executive, advised the people to always pay
their property rates to support the assembly to generate adequate Internally
Generated Fund (IGF) to undertake more development projects.
