Onigbongbo LG Boss Warns Against Tree Felling


Executive Secretary of Onigbongbo Local Council Development Area, Mrs. Nimot Gbadamosi, has appealed to residents to desist from indiscriminate felling of trees meant for environmental beautification.

Executive Secretary of Onigbongbo Local Council Development Area, Mrs. Nimot Gbadamosi, has appealed to residents to desist from indiscriminate felling of trees meant for environmental beautification.

She warned that indiscriminate cutting of trees would henceforth attract sanctions from the local government. The Onigbongbo LCDA boss said apart from the ecological benefits of a cleaner and safer environment, trees also prevent erosion and provide aesthetics for the environment.

Mrs. Gbadamosi reiterated the significance of trees in the environment, describing it as a completion of the ecosystem. She enjoined individuals, community and corporate organisations to partner with the LCDA by embracing the culture of tree planting to save the next generation.

The Onigbongbo LCDA boss said the council would sustain tree planting in the area, adding that all hands must be on deck to ensure that indiscriminate felling of tress without replacement became a thing of the past.

Many thanks to the people who worked hard in the past and those who are still making efforts to keep the institution.

The labour is obviouly worth it. We are proud of you all.

A lot still to be done, with the motivation of the champions of this course, others will follow as well to maintain the institution

May God continue to keep the edifice for development of future generations to the glory of God and the benefits of our fatherland.
