Debate on the NCCE
The town hall of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) in the Western Theme District organised a debate for the candidates in the Western Theme District.
Candidates from the People’s Party (PPM), the Union Movement of Ghana (HUM) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) took part in the Round Table on health, education, employment, security and other issues.
In his opening speech, Dr. Rafael Tufuor, NDC candidate for Theme West’s parliament, noted that some roads in the community are so bad that they cut them off from the rest of Theme West, so he will fight them seriously in his election.
Dr. Tufuor also regretted the absence of a large hospital in the community, most of which was transferred to Tema General Hospital in the eastern part of the city, and suggested that he had begun planning to acquire a modern medical facility for the district.
Mr Emmanuel Abossi Echison, candidate for the GUM representative office, also expressed his regret about the bad roads of local importance and spoke about the complex programme to solve the problem and open up the area to development.
He stated that it would help to improve the municipality’s housing stock and force a large number of migrants from remote areas to get cheap and affordable housing in the municipality, as well as virtually abolishing what he called kiosk colonies, which give the nation a bad image.
M. Solomon Kwesi Amponsa, of the checkpoint, said the lack of control in public schools forced them to eliminate poor students. He therefore calls for a stricter control system that puts the public teacher on his or her feet in order to ensure an effective teaching and learning process.
He believes that many industries in Teme, which are connected to the port of Teme, are sufficient to employ most young people if they are well-managed. In this context, it is determined to ensure that an effective system is put in place to maximise opportunities in the thematic area and to combat local unemployment.
Speaking on the sidelines of a debate at the Ghana News Agency (GNA), Fidel Bortey, the Municipal Director of NCCE for the Western Theme, said We want voters to know before the elections that this is not a fight but a policy they have pursued against us.
That is why we have made this platform available so that everyone can learn about his or her policies, which can influence electoral decisions when it comes to who best represents his or her interests in Parliament.
Mr Borte referred to the NCCE’s efforts to consolidate the debate in Ghana as part of the democratisation process of the country and expressed the hope that such an event would be mandatory so that all political parties would be present in contacts with voters.
Gradually, he said, Ghanaians are moving away from politics of insults because people are now inclined to play politics instead of shouting and fighting.
Mr Bortey therefore asked the Ghanaians to know that peace is the key; let’s listen to politics, let’s vote, because sovereignty belongs to the people.
