The trees are scheduled to be planted on June 11, today and Ghanaians would be mobilised to plant trees on the day and nurture them to maturity as a way of contributing to the preservation of the environment.
The exercise would begin with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Vice President Alhaji Mahamudu Bawumia, the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, and the Chief Justice, Kwasi Anin Yeboah, planting trees.
The Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, Samuel Abu Jinapor, disclosed this in Accra yesterday when he inaugurated a 60-member national planning committee to oversee the implementation of the Green Ghana Project.
The minister said members of the committee were drawn from various public agencies, groups and other stakeholders, including Ghana Revenue Authority, Forestry Commission, Ghana Cocoa Board, Volta River Authority, Minerals Commission, Trade Union Congress, Ghana Union of Traders Association, Zoomlion Ghana Limited and the security agencies.
Mr Jinapor said it would operate by its own rules and procedures and as such was permitted to establish as many sub-committees and teams and patronise consultancy services as it may deem fit for the realisation of its mandate.
