NCCE rolls out sensitization campaign to ensure peace

The National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) has identified 11 potential flashpoints for violence ahead of the 2016 elections.

These flashpoints include Alavanyo and Nkonya in the Volta region, Bunkpurugu and Yendi in the Northern Region as well as Old Tafo in the Ashanti Region.

The Commission has therefore begun an educational campaign in these communities to sensitise residents to ensure peace during the polls.

Deputy Director of the NCCE Samuel Asare Akuamoah told Joy News the communities are being targeted due to their vulnerability.

The objective of holding this peace and conflict engagement is to ensure that we go through this electoral process peacefully, he said.

“What we are doing is to give them the advantages of non-violence over violence. So we ae saying that if you have grievances you express them by taking a non-violent approach.

“We are therefore making sure that all the flashpoint areas and the areas who have the potential to go into violence are engaged to ensure that their situation does not trigger any violence,”
