Following from meetings held recently in the northern and central senatorial districts in the state, we had a Special Security Council Meeting with relevant stakeholders in Edo South Senatorial District, held at the Government House.
With the situation in the country today, we have decided that security is now our number one priority.
In the area of our forests, we have completed documentation and audit of all our forests in the state, particularly in Edo South.
We have done a flyover of all our forests and as we speak, we have set up a new forestry commission.
Our forestry laws that have not been updated in more than 50 years now have been reviewed, and part of the provisions of the law is that we will now re-energize the institution of forest guards.
