STOP BRANDING OLDER PERSONS AS WITCHES -NCCE

The Keta Municipal Director of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), Mr. Godwin Agbenyo has called on Ghanaians to refrain from the act of tagging older people especially women as witches. Instead, they should be accorded with respect, dignity, love and care that they deserve. Mr. Agbenyo stated that, old age is a blessing from God and everyone should appreciate and pray fervently for it.

Mr. Agbenyo made the call when he addressed a durbar for old people at Dzelukope to mark this year’s World Aged Day on the theme: “Celebrating Older Human Rights Champion”.

He urged the aged  to use the occasion to review and reflect on their lives in respect to time, resources, love and care extended to their families during their youthful days. He said, “It is possible that when you turn your back on your spouse, children, families and others that need your support during your youth, they would also do same to you in your old age”.

Mr. Agbenyo admonished the aged to take their health more seriously and engage in active ventures. He also urged them to provide good mentorship to the youth and join hands to fight teenage pregnancy, hard drugs, moral decadence \and indiscipline.
