Ghanaians Urged To Protect Water Bodies And Forest Reserves
The Ashanti Regional Director of Forestry Commission, Mr. Augustine Kofi Gyedu has called on citizenry to protect Ghana’s forest reserves and water bodies for present and future generation use.
He said it will help protect the Mother Earth from Ecological Devastation and the Debilitating effects of Climate Change.
In an exclusive interview with Silver FM’s Akwadaa Nyame during this year’s World Forest Day in Kumasi on Monday, March 21, 2022, Mr Gyedu stated that, every citizen has a responsibility to protecting Ghana’s natural resources such as water bodies and forest reserves.
International Forests Day is a Day set aside by the United Nations (UN) on every 21st Day of March in order to creating public awareness about the important role that forests reserves and all the other trees not forming part of forest zones play in our daily lives as living things.
The Forestry Director, Mr. Gyedu finally outlined some challenges the Commission faces and appealed for all-inclusive to help protect Ghana’s forests from further destruction.
“Our forest, our lives, hence, we should all come together and protect the forest reserves from especially, deforestation”, Kofi Augustine added.
