He stated that he will build on Ghana’s abundant natural resources, which have played a key role in the development efforts of the country.

The Ministry, established under Section 11 of the Civil Service Law 1993 (PNDCL 327), is mandated to ensure the sustainable management and utilization of the nation’s lands, forests and wildlife resources as well as the efficient management of the mineral resources for socio-economic growth and development.

He pointed out that the Ministry which consists of three sub-sectors; Lands, Forestry and Mining will see massive transformation when he assumes the position.

He mentioned that ensuring the sustainable management and utilization of Ghana’s lands, forests, wildlife and mineral resources for socio-economic growth and development which is the Ministry’s Mission will be his major priority.

In the past, the law maker has embarked on many charity projects including a donation of Carbolic Soap to some health facilities in the Damongo Constituency.

The gesture falls in line with safety and preventive measures in the wake of the global outbreak of Coronavirus.

The NPP executives in Damongo led by the second vice chairman Bakuri Kotochi, the organizer Seidu Jaja together with the Communications Director, Iddrisu Laminu made the donation on behalf of Lawyer Jinapor.

According to the Organizer, the lawyer made the donation as the first and immediate measure to prevent the disease from spreading.

Francis Ewuntomah and Francis Salia, who represented the West Gonja District Hospital received the items on behalf of the Hospital.

Aziz Yelichere and Madam Comfort also received the carbolic soap on behalf of the District Health Directorate and the Damongo Town Clinic.
