Ghana: Ghanaians Urged to Protect Environment
The Akyem Abuakwa Youth Movement (AAYoM), a on- partisan and religious youth-oriented human resource development capacity building organisation, has called on Ghanaians across the country, to cultivate the habit of planting, at least, one tree every year.
According to them, in order to preserve the trees, and other natural resources that were preserved by our predecessors, there was the need for Ghanaians to make it a point to replant those trees which were cut, for the sake of the survival of generations to come.
Quoting the popular cliché, when the last tree dies the last man will die, the Movement appealed to the good people of Ghana, not to lose sight of the fact that in our quest for survival, we should not endanger the existence and survival of the next generation, by degrading the environment.
