A citizen of Asutifi South Constituency in the Brong Ahafo Region, Mr Bernard Owusu, has expressed his appreciation to President John Evans Atta Mills for nominating a citizen of the area, Alhaji Collins Dauda, as the Minister of Lands and Natural Resources.
According to him, his appointment would go a long way to serve as a morale booster and motivation for citizens from the Asutifi District and the region to aspire for greater heights in all their endeavours.
Mr Owusu stated this when he called at the Daily Graphic office in Sunyani to express hope that the appointment of Alhaji Dauda would further strengthen the party’s chances of winning more support.
He thanked President Mills for also acknowledging the hard work of Alhaji Dauda in the region and reposing his confidence in him to serve in his government.
Mr Owusu expressed the hope that Alhaji Dauda would bring his rich experience and the knowledge he acquired when he was the Chairman of the Forestry Commission to bear on his work as the Minister of Lands and Natural Resources after being approved by Parliament to become the substantive minister, and prayed to Allah for his guidance for him to excel in that portfolio.
He stated further that he had no shred of doubt in his mind that Alhaji Dauda would serve the nation to the best of his capabilities and help protect and harness the country’s natural resources for the benefit of all.
Mr Owusu also expressed the hope that he would also seek the welfare of communities affected by mining and ensure harmony in the extractive industry.
