Posterity Will Judge Us If We Fail To Protect The Environment - Bishop
The Kumasi Diocese of the Methodist Church Ghana (MCG) has declared support for the ongoing national campaign to halt illegal small-scale mining in all its forms.
“Posterity will judge us if we fail to protect the environment,” the Right Reverend Christopher Nyarko Andam, the Diocesan Bishop, cautioned.
He said the devastation of the country’s ecology and biodiversity was deeply worrying as the survival of mankind depended on the environment.
Right Rev. Andam, who was addressing the 60th Annual Synod of the Diocese at the Adum Wesley Cathedral, Kumasi, said the wanton pollution of water bodies and destruction of forest resources should be tackled head-on.
“For so many years, the nation has been battling illegal small-scale mining, which has wrecked our water bodies as they get contaminated with poisonous chemicals.
“The Methodist Church is appealing to all Ghanaians to come on board and support the Government’s declaration of war on the menace to remedy the harm caused to the environment," Bishop Andam said.
