The Deputy Minister of Lands and Forestry, has reminded contractors undertaking government projects, especially those in the rural communities, to do good jobs to gain good name from the people and the government.

He said it was when infrastructure in the rural communities was properly developed that the people would benefit from the government’s development interventions to promote local economy and the welfare of the citizenry.

Mr. Yeboah said this when he inaugurated a four-unit accommodation block comprising eight rooms for Game and Wildlife Wardens at Gbele Park in the West Sissala District.

The facility, which formed part of the Northern Savanna Biodiversity Project, cost 340 million cedis and was financed by the World Bank through the Global Environment Facility.

Mr. Yeboah appealed to contractors to always execute projects according to specifications and avoid shoddy work.

The Executive Director of Wildlife Division, Nana Kofi Adu-Nsiah, called on officials of the park to strengthen relations with the local people to reduce misunderstandings and the incidence of poaching in the reserve.

Mr. Musah Abu-Juam, Coordinator of the Northern Savanna Biodiversity Project, said the government was trying to upgrade the Gbele Park to supplement the Mole National Park in the West Gonja District to improve eco-tourism in the Upper West Region.

He said the project was working to build the capacity of the personnel and the local people to keep the park secure while efforts were being made to link it to the Natiga Park in Burkina Faso.

Mr. Ishmael Mada, Sissala West District Chief Executive, appealed to the government to hasten the resettlement of the Gbele community to provide total security for the animals in the park.

Mr. Yeboah inaugurated a 320 million-cedi residential accommodation for the Manager of the Park, Mr. Mose Anongura, and a 240 million-cedi office accommodation for the Forestry Service Division at Tumu.

He also presented a Toyota Land Cruser to the Gbele Park for their outreach programmes.
