From Samuel Duodu,
Thirty newly recruited officers of the Game and Wildlife Division of the Forestry Services Commission have passed out after a three-week training course at the Bui Camp in the Tain District of the Brong Ahafo Region.
The Director of Operations of the Wildlife Division, Mr Alex Akuovia, addressing them, pointed out that construction of the Bui Dam posed a big challenge to the Bui Game Reserve, hence the need to increase the workforce and equip the workers with competent skills to protect the reserve.
Mr Akuovia appealed to the chiefs and people of nearby communities to collaborate with the management of the Bui National Park to protect the plant and animal species.
Mr Cletus Nateg of the Forestry Services Division appealed to the trainees to work hard to protect and preserve the park.
Present at the ceremony were Mr Abeku Essel, the Brong Ahafo Regional Manager of the Wildlife Division, and Mr Anthony Daibeli of the Buaben Fiema Forest Reserve.
