Accra, 20th December, 2016. Forest Watch Ghana (FWG), a civil society network of over 35 CSOs and individuals, extends sincere congratulations to you on your election as President of the Republic of Ghana. We also congratulate the people of Ghana for demonstrating strong credentials in democratic consolidation.
Mr. President-elect, you are inheriting the forestry sector which suffers many challenges. Among them are illegal logging and illegal mining which are driven by corruption, weak law enforcement and poor governance.
