Video Of Some Clergymen In Ghana Praying At A Galamsey Site

A video has emerged showing some of the top and notable clergy praying for the end of the activity in the area at a galamsey site in the Eastern Region.

A large number of clergymen stormed the site in protest of the illegal activity that is causing Ghana so much trouble.

The clergy were on the tour to see and learn firsthand about the extent of devastation caused by mining activities.

The immediate past Chairman of the Christian Council of Ghana, Bishop Dr. Paul Boafo, the Presiding Chairman of the Assemblies of God, Rev Dr. Paul Frimpong Manso, and the Chairman of the Church of Pentecost, Ghana, Apostle Eric Nyamekye were among the clergy who visited the sites.

In a media interview, the Chairman of the Church of Pentecost, Ghana, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, called for political will and multi-faceted solutions to end mining activities that are destroying arable lands, farms, and river bodies.

According to Apostle Nyamekye, when leaders fail, people take the law into their own hands, as seen with illegal mining.

“If leaders are not doing what they are supposed to do, then people would take the law into their own hands. So I am calling on our leaders to lead.”

He added: “Somebody must control these young men in the galamsey industry. Somebody would have to educate them and they would stop. But when there is no leadership, then things go wayward.”

“Some people are not willing. Those people have to be sought for, sit them down and cause them to be willing. [As for] human beings there is nothing we can’t destroy or build.

“Now that we have destroyed this, there is a way for us to build. If we sit down and put our mind to it, we will build. It seems a complex approach to deal with. The approach should be multifaceted,” he strongly believed.
