The defenselessness to which the environment is relegated to by human activities that causes environmental degradation and pollution has forced the NCCE in Sissala East District to step out with public education to prompt people about the consequences nearing uneasiness. The district director of NCCE Mr. John Yibile and two of his staff Baba Nansia and Vii-ire Christopher were on Radford FM 6-Oct-18 to caution that bush fires, illegal mining, deforestation and indiscriminate littering of both plastic and solid waste among other negative activities are no longer rendering the environment conducive for living. Mr. John Yibile outlined that these negative activities ensue to poor rainfall patterns, the disruption of the ecosystem services and even water pollution and the spread of diseases. The soil loses its fertility too, leading to poor yields which may affect food security as well as choked Gutters and over flooding during heavy down pour he emphasized. However, the only core of restoration and protection for the environment he said is that, every individual must play a key role in protecting it by afforestation practice whiles desisting activities such as bush burning and many more.
