The Buoyem Electoral Area Assemblymember did a yeoman’s job by mobilising the youth for the Tree Planting Exercise. The enthusiasm was great. The Youth in Afforestation in Techiman North have been deployed to take care of the trees after planting.
After the speeches by Nananom and Officials, which were very brief, the symbolic planting of the trees followed. The Omanhene also planted his tree by the MCE of Techiman Municipality, followed by Buoyemhene/Oyokohene of Techiman Traditional Area, Krontihene of Buoyem, Krontihemaa of Buoyem and others.
It was followed by the masses. It was a very successful exercise.
