NCCE boss ends meeting after requests to speak Twi

Newly appointed municipal director of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) in the New Juaben municipality, Peter Larweh, stormed out of a forum when asked by participants to speak the Twi language.

Peter Larweh is reported to have ended his address midway, handing over his microphone to the emcee as he yelled that he cannot be forced to speak in a language he was not fluent in. He subsequently stormed out of the meeting accusing the locals of dictating to him.

The program, which was aimed at briefing locals on the processes of voting, was later controlled by the Queen mother of New Juaben, Nana Yaa Daani, who calmed the nerves of angry locals calling his the immediate dismissal of the NCCE boss.
