At least 33 employees of the Forestry Development Authority (FDA) are expected to honorably take their final exit with respective handsome retirement packages on December 21, 2018, a release has said.
According to the release, this is the first time in the history of the institution that those who had served with “distinction” over the years will be reaping the fruit of the seeds they had sown by their dedicated services, which the management feels should not go unnoticed.
FDA Public Affairs Director F. Shelton Gonkerwon said the retirement benefits for the retirees are in line with government’s Pro-Poor Agenda, taking into consideration the sacrifices the retirees made in protecting biodiversity conservation.
Gonkerwon described today’s expected exercise as truly people-centered, since it will incite cheer and jubilation and make the retirees practically feel the importance of their labor.
He revealed that a massive preparation is being made by management to give the occasion the befitting festivity, since it is about bidding farewell to people he described as “precious” forest rangers.
Meanwhile on the festive seasons Christmas and New Year’s, the management of the FDA wishes to extend profound salutation to the government and people of Liberia, hoping that the Almighty God will lead the nation and people to the desired nobler height in all of their national endeavors in the year 2019.
