Akufo-Addo Shows Leadership Again As Parliament Suspends Sitting For Today.

Today,the ministry of lands and natural resources will execute the plan of making Ghana green again. The Government will today plant five (5) million trees across the country. This exercise is championed by the forestry commission.

The minister for lands and resources launching this initiative noted that they will be planting trees like Wawa, Nim, Rosewood and others.

"As part of the programme, we are seeking to work out a formula where the trees to be planted will be economic trees. We are talking about the Timber, Wawa, Nim, Rosewood, Shea trees. The rationale for this intervention is so that in planting the trees, we are also making an investment for the future,” he said

The president will join the exercise and will be the first to plant a tree. Parliament too has suspended sitting for today due to the exercise. Akufo-Addo showing leadership noted that he and his government will not sit back and watch our trees wipe out.

"We cannot sit back and watch as our trees, flora and fauna wiped out. Our very existence is tied directly to the survival of trees”, he said, adding that, “Without the oxygen that is produced by trees, we cannot survive as humans. So, on Friday, 11 June, the tree-planting exercise will ensure that we are not only sowing seeds for one day, but also for generations to come…I urge all Ghanaians to join this clarion call and help preserve our environment". His Excellency noted.

Let's all support and make our motherland go green again. Thank you for reading and have a great day. Don't forget to share and follow
