Sissala East: Committee inaugurated to protect Gbele Resource Reserve

Gbelle Game Reserve

A Protected Area Management Advisory Unit (PAMAU) for the Gbele Resource Reserve has been inaugurated at Tumu in the Sissala East Municipality of the Upper West Region.
The 13-member advisory unit simply known as PAMAU was sworn-in by the Magistrate of the Tumu District Court, Ernest Yao Agbenya.
The advisory unit which is the first of its kind in Upper West will among others, assist the Wildlife Division of the Forestry Commission to implement the Protected Area Management Plan through the mobilization of local support.

Correspondent Emmanuel Mensah-Abludo reports that members of PAMAU as part of their mandate will help the Wildlife Division in the development and protection of sacred groves and other sites that are valued by the people.

The Chairman of the Sissala East PAMAU, Kuoro Mahamadu Zakaria Savei indicated that he and his team will engage the fringe communities as their immediate task to help address the challenge of encroachment on lands in the Gbele Reserve and pledged the readiness of the team to serve.

“We shall place our individual expertise at your disposal unrestricted and we are ready to help at all times,”Kuoro Savei emphasized.
The Park Manager of the Gbele Resource Reserve, Dr Polycarp Maabier who is also a member of PAMAU announced that the Reserve is benefiting from the Ghana Landscape Restoration and Small-Scale Mining Project (GLRSSMP) supports the implementation of collaborative resource management for fringe communities.

He continued that under the project, Sissala West and Daffiama-Bussie-Issa (DBI) Districts as well as Sissala East Municipality which are the three political administrative enclaves hosting the Gbele Resource will be supported to conserve a total land size of 244,813.55 hectares the Community Resource Management Area (CREMA) approach.

Dr Maabier talked about “dawadawa” value chain as one of the benefits the communities will derive from the project. “When you take our Park for instance, the Gbele Resource Reserve, we are bringing on board dawadawa processing, they want to enhance the dawadawa value chain.

We have already worked on the organic shea value chain and the communities, the PAMAUs will be able to advice the Park that look, if we set up such an industry here, it will benefit a larger community,” he noted.

The MCE for Sissala East, Fuseini Yakubu Batong underscored the need for the tourism potentials of the area to be trumpeted to enable the needed revenue to be generated from the Gbele Resource Reserve and asked for the roads in his Municipality to be ungraded.

Mr Batong said: “I will like to use this opportunity to appeal to the road minister to come to the aid of the Sissala people.”

The Chief of Duang and Chairman of DBI PAMAU, Kuoro Sumaila Tambogikuon reiterated the necessity for all relevant stakeholders within the political class to treat the road issue as an urgent and critical need for development.

A former District Secretary and retired educationist, Daniel Yoho who chaired the function emphasized the necessity for the members of PAMAU and the staff of the Wildlife Division of the Forestry Commission to be protected to deliver in their line of duty.

UW: Dr Hilla Limann Technical University To Cough over GHc7,000 Back To State

Lecture Theater of University

Dr James Klutse Avedzi, Chairman of Public Accounts Committee (PAC) of Parliament, on Monday gave Management of the Dr Hilla Limann Technical University, in Wa, a week’s ultimatum to remit GHc7,312.68 to the pension fund.

The 2019 Auditor General’s report of the public accounts of technical universities and polytechnics indicated that Dr Hilla Limann Technical University failed to remit the first and second-tier mandatory pension contributions of nine of its employees.

The PAC considered this a violation of section three of the National Pensions Act 2008, Act 766 as indicated in the report and directed the University’s Management to make necessary arrangements to pay the statutory contributions to the appropriate scheme.

The PAC, while probing the Dr Hilla Limann Technical University during its sitting in Tamale, found out that the institution failed to take the necessary steps as recommended by the committee during the previous sitting.

Also in the report, the Audit Service’s review of store records and physical stock-taking indicated that 27 photocopier toners procured by the Technical University in 2016, valued at GHc3,360 were unused and branded obsolete.

The PAC, during its previous sitting, recommended that the Technical University should ensure efficiency in stock management to avoid wastage, which they failed to do.

Professor Elias Sowley, Vice-Chancellor of the Dr Hilla Limann Technical University, in response to the infraction, said Management found out that the toners were not compatible with the University’s photocopiers anymore.

He said plans were advanced to sell the toners to other tertiary or pre-tertiary institutions, whose photocopiers could match them.

In view of this, the Chairman of PAC recommended that the University’s Management quickened arrangements to sell the toners to avoid sanctions for causing financial loss.

The PAC began sitting in Tamale on Monday, August 8, to consider the 2019 report of the Auditor-General in the Northern, Savannah, North-East, Upper East and Upper West Regions.

The sittings, which are expected to last for six days, will see PAC members probe the Public Accounts of Technical Universities and Polytechnics, Colleges of Education, Senior High Schools, Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies, among others.

Wa: WaSec Old Students Urged To Pay Anniversary Levy

Wa Senior High School

Past Students of Wa Senior High School (WASSOSA)in the Wa Municipality are set to celebrate it’s 50th Anniversary in August after a failed attempt to celebrate it in 2021.

This was as a result of The severity of Coronavirus Pandemic in the previous year.

Each Past Student is to pay Ghc50 per a Statement issued by the Outgoing President of the Association Prof.  Robert Yennah.


Dear Mmabiihi,


As you might be aware, our alma mater, Wa Senior Secondary School was fifty years in November 2021 but, unfortunately, we were not able to celebrate it due to the Covid 19
pandemic. In line with best practices globally, there is every indication that we will be celebrating the golden jubilee in grand style this year with the launch in August 2022.

It is however, important to state that this important celebration cannot be marked with pomp and pageantry without the necessary financial resources. It is against this backdrop that the National Executive Committee decided to levy every member of the association an amount of at least fifty

Ghana Cedis (GHC 50.00) to be paid by the end of September 2022.

Receipt books will be given to some members in the various regions for the collection of the said levies. A dedicated MOMO MTN Number will also be given out to enable those who may wish to pay through that mode to do so.

We look forward to receiving positive responses from all WASSOSA members to enable us organise a successful Golden Jubilee celebration.
