The Kpando Municipal Assembly has planted 6,000 different species of trees across the municipality out of some 10,000 seedlings that were nursed for planting on Green Ghana Day on Friday in the area.

The Municipal Chief Executive for the area, Joe Badasu said the remaining 4,000 will be planted on four hectares of land situated in the municipality.

However, Mr Badasu said some staff of the assembly who did not participate in the planting exercise would be punished accordingly to serve as deterrents to others.

“This is a national assignment and all heads of department (of the assembly) were expected to be part of this exercise and for some very strange reasons some decided to absent themselves, those heads of departments Monday they’ve to explain why they’ve absented themselves without reason,” he told journalists after the exercise.

Mr Badasu said the assembly will continue to protect and maintain the trees across the Kpando Municipality to grow well.

According to him, the ones planted last year are doing well with some struggling due to weather conditions.

He charged the people of Kpando to show enthusiasm and always plant trees and protect the planted ones to make sure that they grow.
