You Need To Be Independent And Not Controlled By Anyone Not Even Me- Prez To New NCCE Chairperson.

The National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) is an independent, non-partisan governance institution set up under Article 231 of the Constitution of the Republic of Ghana. The Commission works to promote and sustain democracy and inculcate in the Ghanaian citizenry an awareness of their rights and obligations through civic education.

The Commission appointed a new chairperson, called Madam Kathleen Addy. She was appointed to replace Madam Joseph Nkrumah, who resigned from the position.

President Akufo-Addo, speaking at the swearing-in ceremony for Madam Kathleen Addy, reminded her of her independence, as the 1992 constitution said. He wanted her to be independent and not controlled by anyone, including him, as head of state. She has to perform her functions without the influence of any authority. Because that is the work of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE).

It has been rumoured that the NCCE has not been independent and effective in its functions, according to some quarters, but the president is of a different opinion. He believes the NCCE and the new chairperson, Madam Kathleen Addy, will continue to be relevant and still have an important role to play for the country.
