Dr. Nanah Pratt the newly appointed Board Chairperson of the National Protected Area Authority (NPAA), who has served for a period of thirty- two year in academia and has attained the positions of senior lecturer and head of the Chemistry Department at Fourah Bay College, University of Sierra Leone, yesterday Thursday May 4th 2017, during her interview before the Committee on Appointment in Committee Room one (1) at the Parliament of Sierra Leone has vowed to uplift the status of the National Protected Area Authority (NPAA) throughout the country.


The Chairman of the Committee on Appointment, the Majority Leader and Leader of Government Business, Hon. Leonard S. Fofanah said the committee has done its background investigations on the caliber of Dr. Nanah Pratt and has put out public notices in order to get public views on the appointment made by HE the President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma for Dr. Nanah Pratt to serve in the capacity of Chairperson of the National Protected Area Authority (NPAA).

 

During the interview sessions, Dr. Pratt said that the Office of the National Protected Area Authority (NPAA) was established by an Act of Parliament and the purpose of the office is to ensure that conservational forest and wildlife areas are protected.  However, she disclosed that there are lots of challenges at the National Protected Area Authority (NPAA) in terms of people living at the sea sides and even at the protected areas.  I have worked at Guma Valley as chairperson for eight (8) years with wealth of experience and I will bring this knowledge to address the challenges of encroachments and other related issues,  Dr. Nanah Pratt assured the Committee on Appointment.

 

She added that she will soon recommend that they enforce the laws of the Authority throughout the country to arrest and charge people to court that are violating the Laws governing the protected areas. She went on that before disaster looms, they will make sure that people living at these protected areas are disciplined, discouraged and removed because at the end they will start asking government for help after lives and properties are destroyed. Dr. Nanah Pratt, guaranteed that they will take serious action to reduce and address the fatal disaster that normally occurs at the protected areas during and after the raining season.
