Gather The Waste! – Pastor Agbeko Charges

The Kwashieman Official Town District Minister, Pastor Emmanuel Dzemekey Agbeko, has charged members of the Church and Ghanaians, in general, to ensure that all wastes they generate are properly managed.

He made this statement at a Stakeholders’ Meeting organised as part of the 2023 Environmental Care Campaign on Sunday, March 12, 2023 at Kwashieman Official Town Assembly (KOTA).

He mentioned that, through the act of obedience by the disciples, the 12 baskets of leftover food were not made to go waste; neither were they left to rot and pollute the environment.

By gathering the leftovers, the disciples had the opportunity to preserve or re-use the pieces for other beneficial purposes.

Pastor Agbeko applied the lessons from these passages to the way the environment is being managed.

He said that God dwells among them and He does not like waste so we must not be surrounded with it – whether food leftovers, plastics or any other form of garbage. Out of the leftover substances around us, we can find opportunities to create new things to solve some problems of society and also earn income.

He advised participants to ensure that their homes are always clean and extend this habit of cleanliness everywhere they are.

The Presiding Member for the Ablekuma North Municipal Assembly, Hon. Edmund Nii Lomo, in a brief remark at the event, pledged the full support of the Municipal Assembly towards the success of the Environmental Care Campaign.

The traditional leaders also promised to inform the entire community to turn up in their numbers to join the cleanup exercise.

Present at the meeting were the Presiding Member of Ablekuma North Municipal Assembly, Hon. Edmund Nii Lomo, the Queen Mother of Kwashieman, Naa Larteley Ayewuhu, and her elders and some other opinion leaders in the community.
