As part of efforts to mitigate the effects of climate change, the federal government is set to engage youths, women and retirees to plant one billion trees across the six geopolitical zones of the country.

The minister of the Environment, Balarabe Abbas Lawal, disclosed this on Wednesday during a courtesy visit to him in his office by the chief of defence staff, General Christopher Musa, in Abuja.

The minister, however, expressed his displeasure over the rate at which criminals have taken over the country's forest reserved areas, using it to carry out their evil activities against the innocent citizens.
He, therefore, sought collaborative and partnership efforts with the Nigeria army to mitigate the activity of banditry, killing of wildlife and logging of trees in our forest reserved areas.
Balarabe congratulated the chief of defence staff, General Musa on his appointment as 18th chief of defence staff of the country, adding that it was well deserved.


In his remarks, General Musa said he came around to have a close conversation with the minister and his team over the obvious effects of climate change in the country and how they can collaborate and partner to curb the incessant effects on the ecosystem.
He congratulated the minister and his team for the efforts being made to mitigate the massive effects of climate change in the country and promised to leverage on those efforts by giving the ministry maximum support in the area of preserving Nigerian forest.

In his closing remarks, the permanent secretary of the ministry of environment, Adams Muhmud Kambari, thanked the chief of defence staff for his unwavering support and commitment to nature.
