Deforestation: Nigeria has lost 96% of its forest — NCF

By: Ramjoe (M) |Time : September 03, 2018, 06:02:10 AM
LAGOS—Director- General of the Nigerian Conservation Foundation, NCF, Dr. Muhtari Aminu-Kano has disclosed that Nigeria has lost 96 percent of its forest due to deforestation, lamenting that the country currently has only four percent of its original forest cover.

 Dr. Aminu-Kano, who spoke with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos said: “About 96 per cent of our original forest has been lost; it is catastrophic.

“It is sad that we are losing vegetation cover and there is an absolute need to make concerted effort to grow more trees because the more the merrier not only in Lagos but also across the country.”

Aminu-Kano said NCF was exploring ways of increasing the country’s vegetation from four per cent  to at least 25 per cent  in the next 30 years.

Eh...

We're losing our minds...

Losing our values...

Even lives, lives of precious citizens...

Losing is something we're getting accustomed to by the passing of each day.
