The Sefwi Akontombra District of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), has engaged the Anglican Church in the district as part of the 2023 Annual Constitution Week Celebration.

The Resource Person was the District Director, Douglas Acquah. Mr. Acquah urged the congregation to protect and safeguard the environment. He asked them to save the country’s water bodies by stopping illegal mining (Galamsey). He said the consequences are dire and every well-meaning citizen must condemn the activities of illegal miners. ‘Their actions are dangerous to our health and the environment we are all living in’, he lamented.

The Head Pastor of the Church, Father Ernest Quacoe was equally unhappy about the activities of illegal miners and said, ‘If the “galamsey” practice is not stopped, the main occupation which is farming will be destroyed and the local members would have to go to the cities to buy drinking water. Moreover, there would not be any land to farm on as the farms will be destroyed by the activities of these miners’.
