The Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, Hon Samuel Abu Jinapor arrived in his beloved constituency of Damongo on 18th June 2021. His arrival home is not surprising, but how he is engaging with the community members is worthy of emulation. This is unusual among Ghanaian politicians.
The month of April, May and June has been a hectic one for the Honourable Minister.
On May 2021 Samuel Abu Jinapor embarked on an aerial tour of River Pra which covers a large expanse of land in the Central, Western, Eastern, and Ashanti regions.
On 11th June, he took part in the Green Ghana project and on 18th June, he went ahead to participate in a roundtable discussion on climate adaptation and resilience.
One would have thought Hon. Samuel A. Jinapor would take a rest after reaching his beloved constituency, but it has not been the case. The indefatigable Minister is going round to build trust and rapport with his community members. Ghanaians are applauding the Minister for balancing the hectic job as a Minister of Lands and Natural Resources (fighting illegal mining) and getting in touch with his constituents. One online commentator believes that this is the time to kick old gurus out of the parliamentary system and bring in young ones. “This is a true representation of the people”, one said.
