Photos: NCCE joins security services in a peaceful march

Thousands of security personnel and officials of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) on Thursday took to the streets of Accra for a peaceful march. 

The exercise was to demonstrate the preparedness of the security services and to assure the public of their safety ahead of the December 7 polls, during which more than 17 million voters are expected to elect a  president and 275 parliamentarians.

The security services comprise of the Police Service, Armed Forces, Prison Service, National Fire Service, Immigration Service, Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority, National Intelligence Bureau, and the National Ambulance Service.

Ahead of the elections, the Ghana Police Service has identified  6,1 78 flashpoints across the 16 regions where potential electoral violence could occur before or after the December 7 elections.

The number of flashpoints had increased since the last elections in 2016 when the violence-prone areas were a little over 5,000.

The march is, therefore, part of efforts to ward off and warn trouble makers, as the country prepares for its eight presidential and parliamentary elections.

This is the second time; the Ghana Police Service is embarking on a peace march ahead of the general elections.

In September this year, the police embarked on a ‘confidence-building march’. It was aimed at assuring the general public of its preparedness to maintain law and order before, during, and after the December 2020 polls.

Route 1: Independence Square – Liberation Rd. – 37 – N1 – Weija – Kasoa – Oboom Road – Amasaman – Sowutuom – N1 – 37 Giffard Road
