NCCE launches committee in Nandom for peaceful elections 2024


The Nandom Municipal Directorate of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) has inaugurated the Committee for Inter-Party Dialogue (IPDC) as part of measures to promote peace and security before, during and after the 2024 general elections.

The committee includes representatives of the various political parties in Nandom constituency, security forces, religious leaders and the media.

The initiative is led by the NCCE, with financial support from the European Union (EU), to work to avert violent extremism and promote peaceful coexistence and national cohesion.

Speaking at the launch of the committee in Nandom, the Acting Municipal Manager of the NCCE, Mr. Issahaque T. Angme, said the committee would undertake peace building activities in collaboration with other stakeholders in the municipality to achieve the set objectives.

“The above objectives will enable all stakeholders to work together to effectively counter the threat through committed efforts to counter Violent Extremism and Terrorism (VET) before, during and after the 2024 general elections,” he explained out.

Mr Angme indicated that due to the proximity of Nandom Municipality to Burkina Faso, where vocational education and training activities were taking place, there was a great need for the people of the municipality to take their safety very seriously and he spoke hoping that the PBC would help with this. greeting

The Upper West Regional Director of the NCCE, Mr. Victor Elikpilim Nuworkpor, commended the members of the committee for their commitment to ensuring and promoting peace and security in the municipality.

He encouraged them to work together, which was a requirement to prevent the infiltration of unscrupulous persons into the municipality that would cause chaos, especially during the election campaigns.

The chairman of the IPDC, Reverend Dr. Stephen A. Koya, expressed his gratitude and appreciation to the committee members and stakeholders for their efforts to help chart a course of peace for the municipality.

He stressed the need for members of the IPDC to resort to Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) to resolve misunderstandings, avoid policies of insult and incrimination, among others, and always uphold objectivity, truth and prudence.

He stated that since the formation, inauguration and operationalization of the IPDC concept in Nandom Municipality in 2016, many achievements have been made to prevent Nandom Municipality from becoming a flashpoint.

“It has established and sustained peace, cohesion and social inclusion for development. Strategically, peace was admirably praised before, during and after the election of presidential and parliamentary candidates in 2016 and 2020,” explained Rev. Dr. Koya out.

The members of the commission unanimously decided to proactively and cautiously promote peace before, during and after the 2024 presidential and parliamentary elections.

The Nandom Municipal IPDC is chaired by Rev. Dr. Stephen A. Koya, with Naa Vitalis Yelyang as Vice Chairman and Issabaque. T. Angme as Secretary.
