Officers of the forestry ministry in Ogun State, especially those in the forest reserves have been urged to stand up to their responsibility towards harnessing the natural resources and uphold the global highest standards of forestry management.

Ogun State Commissioner for Forestry, Mr Taiwo Oludotun stated this during the opening ceremony of a three-day retreat, organised by the ministry for the management staff and heads of division of the ministry, at Ijebu -Ode, in Ogun State. 

The commissioner explained that the retreat was a unique opportunity for them to reflect on rules and regulations guiding their jobs as foresters, exchange ideas and deepen their understanding of forest management principles.

Mr Oludotun who noted that though the government was committed to the preservation of natural vegetation, especially in the protection of the ozone layer, said the ministry would not be deterred from boosting the revenue by blocking leakages.

Earlier, the Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Mr Timothy Olatunji, had explained that the retreat would enable officers to reflect on global best practices, identify areas of improvement, and collectively brainstorm on innovative solutions while drawing on diverse perspectives and expertise within the group.

Participants including Mrs. Asake Badejo and Mr. Olumuyiwa Adeogun appreciated the leadership of the ministry for organising the retreat, assuring that the knowledge gained would be utilised to move the ministry forward.
