The Effutu Municipal Chief Executive, Nii Ephraim, has urged students and pupils to learn the Constitution to enable them to be abreast with the rules and regulations governing the country.
He said this in a speech read for him at a forum to launch the celebration of Citizens Day in Winneba in the Central Region.
The Programme under the theme “Stand Up For Ghana” was organised by the Effutu Directorate of the National Commission on Civic Education (NCCE).
Nii Ephraim appealed to students and pupils to abstain from immoral acts, including drugs abuse, disrespect to authority and indecent dressing and not to allow politicians to mislead them.
Mr Robert Collins Annan, NCCE Effutu Director, said the day was also set aside to advise the students and pupils to study the Constitution and concentrate on their studies.
Mr John Edumadze, a retired educationist, urged the people to be mindful of their words and avoid the use of provocative language against each other to sustain the peace of the country.
Mrs Nelly Shelly Coleman, Assistant Director in charge of Administration and Finance of the Effutu Municipal Directorate of the Ghana Education Service (GES) who chaired the programme, appealed to the people to cultivate the spirit of volunteerism.
