The Focus Must Not Be On One Person: Kwaku Azar Makes Hot Claims On Forestry Commission

The Forestry Commission deployed 12 forest guards to monitor and protect Fasoh Multi Services’ mining concession in the Upper Wassaw Forest Reserve. 

This was after an elaborate ceremony where FMS requested protection after it had donated a pickup truck to the Commission.

The Commission, whose CEO owns FMS, has a 9-person Board and aims to be “a corporate body of excellence in the sustainable development, management, and utilization of Ghanaians forest and wildlife resources.”

One wonders whether this is an outlier or a microcosm of how we are running the public sector, managing our forests, and awarding mining concessions.

The focus must not be on one person but rather on the institutional failures that allow such things to happen.

These include the asset disclosure regimes, the way we appoint our boards, the internal control regimes, conflict of interest rules, and even the very act of the public institutions accepting donations from private citizens.
