The leadership of the Christian Ecumenical Bodies in Ghana is deeply concerned about the devastation that illegal mining (galamsey) has caused our nation, and the negative health and economic effect it will have on our country's future.

We wish to remind Ghanaians of our mandate to keep the environment and be responsible stewards of same (Genesis 2:15).

In view of this, the Ecumenical Leaders will hold a Press Conference to address the issue of galamsey and present a petition to the President of our nation. The details of the press conference are as follows:

Date : Monday October 17, 2022

Time : 10am prompt

Venue : Assemblies of God Head Office, Osu.

By this letter, the Christian Ecumenical leaders wish to invite all Media Houses, the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources, Civil Society, Political Parties, Security Agencies, and Traditional Leaders to be part of this important programme

It is our hope and prayer that Ghanaians will stand up against galamsey and preserve our environment from further destruction.

May the Peace of God be with us all.
