The Exercise took place at the official residences of the Chief Justice and Judges respectively on Friday, June 10, 2022.
The Chief Justice, who planted the first tree, in his brief remarks called on all well-meaning Ghanaians to work to secure Ghana’s environment and consciously make efforts to repair and restore what had been destroyed or lost.
“I believe that this exercise imposes a duty on all of us to reflect on our actions in our everyday lives. We have to take ever more conscious efforts to repair and restore our planet. We must not only plant trees on one day in June, but we must do so and care for them throughout the year”, he said.
The 2022 edition of the Green Ghana Day has the theme: “Mobilizing for a greener future”, with the aim to plant 20 million tree seedlings nationwide at strategic locations in the country.
The exercise also saw some Justices of the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal plant trees.
