Ghanaians urged to support governments against illegal mining

Prophetess Tina Essel Agbodo, Founder of the Oasis of Joy International Fellowship, has called on Ghanaians to support the government in its efforts to fight illegal mining.

She described illegal mining as an evil act which needed to be stopped or would plunder the nation of her natural resources.

Prophetess Agbodo was speaking at the end of a three-day ‘Fruit of the Womb’ conference at Haatso in Accra.

The conference dubbed ‘I Shall Not Die’ is aimed at praying for the barren as well as praying for peace and the development of the nation.

Prophetess Agbodo stressed that illegal miners were wicked citizens who sought the destruction of the environment for their personal interest.

Lamenting the destructive nature of galamsey to the country’s water bodies and vegetation, she stated that people engaged in such activities were even more wicked and dangerous than murderers.

‘In all let us think about the future of the country and the generations to come’, Prophetess Agbodo said.

She called on the citizenry to put the interest of the nation first and desist from attitudes and activities that would destroy it.

Prophetess Agbodo commended the government for the Free SHS initiative saying that it had opened the door for many Ghanaians who could not have attained Free SHS education and urged the youth to rely on God to solve their problems instead of resorting to ‘Sakawa’ which had eaten deep into many youth in the country.

She urged religious leaders to desist from negative tendencies that may bring the clergy into disrepute.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
