We cannot tolerate galamsey any longer – President of Apostolic Church

Apostle Dr. Aaron Ami-Narh, president of the Apostolic Church in Ghana, has bemoaned the detrimental consequences of galamsey activities on the nation’s natural resources.

In his sermon to churchgoers, Dr. Aaron Ami-Narh claimed that the nation’s leaders had not contributed enough to the effort to combat the threat.

He claims that the leaders of Ghana’s numerous denominations have now banded together to combat the nation’s unlawful mining.

“Our country is experiencing a problem that we cannot ignore any longer. The leaders of the churches in this country have spoken up and are saying enough is enough because we have waited for support for a very long time and it is not coming from where it should,” he stated.

A red robe was tied to Apostle Dr. Aaron Ami-hands Narh’s to symbolize the churches’ protest against illicit mining.

He claimed that different church leaders will carry out this action every Sunday in order to send messages to the “orchestrators” of the illicit mining operations.

He claimed that Galamsey’s operations are “mortgaging the history of this nation in a terrible way” by causing wanton damage to the numerous water bodies and environment.

He urged every member of the congregation to join the battle against the canker.

To help the government stop the threat of illicit mining in the nation, Minister of Lands and Natural Resources Samuel A. Jinapor has enlisted the backing of the Christian Council of Ghana’s leadership.

Describing the engagement with the Council as a productive, impactful and useful one, Samuel Jinapor said the meeting is in line with President Akufo-Addo’s quest to mobilise broad-based national support for the ongoing fight against illegal mining.

The Council’s agreement to collaborate with the government to handle the unlawful mining situation, according to him, is the main result.

To be able to change the hearts and minds of the Ghanaian people, he said, “We need powerful and authoritative voices.”

The Minister’s meeting with the Christian Council in Accra comes after several interactions with important stakeholders, including the Council of State, in an effort to gather trustworthy and sound inputs to help the government design the best course of action, including fighting the canker, enhancing mining operations, and enhancing the nation’s ecological system.
