The National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) has clarified that the 50 vehicles it received from the office of the President may be a loan from the National Security for 3 months to accentuate its campaign against COVID-19 disease.
There are media reports that the NCCE which has been starved off resources within the past had been given vehicles to assist with the fight against COVID-19.
But speaking on the Morning Starr on Monday, Ms Josephine Nkrumah, Chairperson of the Commission, disclosed that the vehicles aren’t for the commission but are going to be in their possession for under three months.
“The 50 vehicles are loaned to us from the national security through the office of the chief of staff for 3 months…We are working through the chief of staff within the hope that they don’t come for it after the three months,” Ms Nkrumah told host Francis Abban.
She added that “we met the President and he said we should always consider engaging other state institutions that aren’t very busy in times like these…this is more sort of a stop-gap measure.”
Meanwhile, the Chairperson of the Commission, Josephine Nkrumah says Members of Parliament who have contracted COVID-19 should be arrested if they put in force coming to the chamber.
“I think it’s damn right preposterous and irresponsible. i believe people should be made to account why they’re endangering other lives. I don’t understand why a number of the MPs have chosen to lament about it. it’s almost nonsensical to think that this is often occurring.”
