1:46:00 AM

Former President Jerry John Rawlings has advised Ghanaians to take care of the nations ceremonial streets just like the way they consciously dress nicely.

He said ceremonial streets were critical and needed better management to make them serve their historic purposes.

Former President Rawlings gave the advice in Accra on Thursday when he laid a foundation stone as part of activities to mark the upcoming Lions Clubs International (LCI) centennial celebration.

He said some leaders of the country were not protecting the environment and were destroying the natural resources with impunity.

He stressed: It is terrible enough; we at the top are not protecting the environment but indulging in impunity.
Former President Rawlings bemoaned the terrible attitude of indiscriminate felling of tress and challenged the media to campaign against such practices as they had started with the รข€˜Galamsey campaign.

The media, support to wake us up, otherwise this legacy will be meaningless.
Changing people, calls for educating them on the protection of the environment and not treating it any how that will affect them later, he said.

The former President congratulated LCI for the many charitable works they had been serving the country with.

He lauded them for their choice of road for the legacy project which included a playground and monument to be constructed to enhance the independence avenue vicinity.
