Church of Pentecost: Launches Environmental Health Campaign, Public Urged To Use Sanitation To Glorify Ghana.
The Suame Area head of the church of Pentecost in the Ashanti region, Apostle John Obeng Kesse has called on the general public to use Sanitation to make Ghana a glorious country in Africa and the world.
According to the man of God, It is sad and disgraceful that at this time of development and level of civilization, people still litter and defecate around indiscriminately and with a high level of impunity.
Apostle John Obeng Kesse was speaking at an environmental healthcare campaign launching ceremony, initiated by the church of Pentecost at Abrepo central congregation on Thursday and said clean environment contributes to improve quality healthcare.
He has challenged Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Assemblies to strictly enforce sanitation bye-laws and recommend stiffer punishment for non-conformers of the bye-laws.
Apostle John Obeng Kesse whose 18 districts are formed under his survey, leadership advised the general public to manage the environment to enhance profound glory for the country and their lives.
The area head therefore called on all religious bodies in the country region and the country as a whole to use their platforms to preach about the effects of filth and the benefits of a clean environment to individuals and their communities.
The Abrepo District Pastor of the Church of Pentecost in the Ashanti region, Pastor Agyei-Boako Frank has implored Ghanaian citizenry to endeavour to make every day a sanitation day to promote environmental cleanliness in the country.
The district pastor expressed discomfort with the improper and indiscriminate disposal of waste among Ghanaians which consequently choked gutters and water contributing to the perrennial flooding in some parts of the country.
Pastor Agyei-Boako Frank, however, asked the stakeholders to do more to help manage uncontrolled plastic waste, which remained a nuisance in major cities and towns, and also help segregate solid and liquid waste as well.
The theme for the campaign was dubbed “my environment, my responsibility” and was graced with many dignitaries including traditional authorities government officials and all environmental stakeholders.
Speaking with Rexkin Ohene Boateng, Rev. Simon Peter Agyei, the Tarkwa and Suame area District Pastor and Environmental Care Campaign Coordinator of the church, disclosed that one of the priority of the Pentecost church is to improve health and sanitation in Ghana by 2023.
He pointed Sanitation has been one of the country’s major problems and remains a serious challenge to the health sector of the country.
“We would sustain the sanitation campaign to make Ghana clean by focusing efforts to whip the interest of the citizenry to adhere to good sanitation and environmental practices”, Pastor Simon said.
