On Tuesday, 18th May 2021, I joined the Lands and Natural Resources Minister, Hon. Samuel Abu Jinapor, in a collaborative aerial (helicopter) tour over the Pra River, to ascertain the progress of the sanctioned operations to protect and preserve our country’s forest cover and water bodies.
We engaged the chiefs of the inhabited towns along the stretch of the river in Western Region.
We urged them to give their utmost supports to the fight against the menace. We again urged the chiefs to support the agenda for reforestation to ensure the sustenance of our forest and water bodies.
For the purposes of continuous tactical patrol on our water bodies, I acquired twenty (20) canoes to be used in the Western Region.
