The conservator general of the National Park Service (NPS) on Monday said the National Assembly had approved the commencement of 10 new national parks.

The CG said this in Abuja at the decoration ceremony of its officers in the service.

“It is gratifying to mention that the service has recently received the concurrence of the National Assembly with the formal proclamation of the new national parks into existence.

“With this development, the new national parks will soon become operational and will expand the scope of the service,” he noted.

Mr Goni assured the newly promoted and all other personnel of the service of enabling the environment to operate and exhibit their full potential.

“Some of the efforts in this direction include regular training programmes, training, conferences, seminars and study tours.

“I urge these new officers to reciprocate this gesture by ensuring that they discharge their duties diligently and to the highest professional standard. To whom much is given; much is expected,” the CG noted.

Assistant conservator general of the Ecology and Resource Department in NPS, Mohammed Kabir, urged the newly promoted officers to continue to be diligent in discharging their duties.

Responding, Conservator of Parks Dinatu Samuel, on behalf of the seven CPs, assured the service that they would do their best to achieve the organisational mandate of the service.
Seventy-five officers were promoted to several levels.
