June 9th, is a day set aside by the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for the Green Ghana Day project. It is usually observed with a nationwide tree-planting exercise to raise awareness on the effect of climate change on the environment. The initiative was also intended to restore the lost forest cover of the country devastated by illegal small-scale mining and timber logging. The event also aimed at inculcating values of planting and nurturing trees in the country as well as beautifying the environment.

The Municipal Coordinating Director (MCD) in the person of Mr. Mohammed Ali Amadu and staff of the Kpone-Katamanso Municipal Assembly (KKMA) joined teachers and pupils at the St. Peter Damian Catholic church/school to observe the 2023 Edition of the Green Ghana Project.

In his remarks, the MCD stated that, the day presented an opportunity for Ghanaians to show patriotism and commitment towards protecting the countries forest cover and leave the younger generation a greener Ghana. He further elaborated that “Government cannot do it alone”, hence the need for all to get involved and support the Government’s Green Ghana initiative. He charged all present to take good care of the seedlings planted.

Mr. Amadu expressed his appreciation to churches, mosques and institutions that participated in the program.
