Hon. Benito Owusu-Bio, the Deputy Minister in charge of Lands and Forestry and Chairman of the Green Ghana National Planning Committee has on Wednesday, 1st June 2022 engaged the Public Relations Officers/Managers of the various Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to court support for the Ministry’s Flagship Afforestation programme, Green Ghana Project.
Addressing the communications officers, Hon. Benito said the Ministry, will need their support as the mouthpiece of their various institutions to carry the message of planting 20 million trees on June 10 across the board.
He pointed out that although the Ministry’s ideal target is to plant 20 million trees on June 10, he expects that even after the day, the PROs will see to it, that the planting of seedlings procured is done even after the scheduled date.
He entreated the offices to organise short ceremonial events for their Ministers to plant trees around their workplaces adding that ” if you don’t have space around your Ministry, you can find somewhere within the agencies under your outfit and plant there”
