Sogakope (VR), Feb.
27, GNA – Apostle Isaac Tetteh Juddah, the Sogakope Area head of Church of
Pentecost, has asked pupils to be agents of change, spearheading the fight to
protect the environment against degradation.

He said it has
become necessary to mandate pupils to take up the responsibility of protecting
the environment as future leaders. 

Apostle Tetteh said
this at Sogakope D/A Basic “A” school where he deliberated on the need to
protect the environment as part of the Church of Pentecost’s 2020 Environmental
Care Campaign.

“I expect you to
educate your parents to stop the indiscriminate felling of trees, improper
usage of chemicals in farming and fishing and improper garbage disposal,” he
said.

Apostle Juddah said
the excessive heat being experienced was due to human activities that depleted
the ozone layer and if attitudes were not checked and changed, the heat may get
worse.

He said God had
mandated every human being to take good care of the environment and anybody
that was called a Christian had the obligation to fulfil that mandate.

Apostle Juddah asked
teachers to consistently check the personal hygiene of schoolchildren, adding
that, “if a child maintains good personal hygiene, it reflects in all aspects
of his life.”

The teachers
applauded the initiative of the Church of Pentecost and asked them to extend
the education to agrochemical shops so they know the effects of chemicals on
plants and waterbodies when used wrongly.

The pupils were
taken through ways of proper garbage disposal and how to maintain good personal
hygiene.
