Present at the Handing over of the motorbikes were DCE, Hon. Ernest Patrick Kojo Mallet, Agriculture Director, Mr. Enoch Dzadzra, DIO, Madam Nancy Dogbey, Agriculture Staff and some Assembly Staff.
The Director of Agriculture, Mr. Enoch Dzadzra expressed gratitude to the Government’s intervention to provide motorbikes for the Agriculture Department Field Staff to do their field work.
The Director revealed that there has been a challenge/delay of registering the motorbikes by the suppliers but due to constant pressure by the Agriculture Department on the suppliers, it was registered successfully.
DCE, Hon. Mallet in his speech said motorbikes are major source of accidents in the District so he urged the beneficiaries of the Agriculture Department to protect themselves whilst discharging their duties.
Hon. Mallet also emphasized on motorbike license for the Agriculture Staff. He gave an example of riders who claim to have license but rather end up on wrong side of roads.
Hon. Mallet finally warned Agriculture Staff benefiaries to use the motorbikes for what they have been purchased for.
The handing over of the motorbikes took place at the Agriculture Station at Kpeve.
