Buhari unfolds plans to reverse climate change effects in Nigeria

President Muhammadu Buhari has said that his administration will reverse the negative effects of climate change in Nigeria.

He made this known in New York, United States of America while addressing the United Nations climate action summit.

While sharing the sentiment expressed by the U.N secretary-general that the world is on the verge of climate catastrophe, President Buhari stated that undeniably, climate change is a human-induced phenomenon.

He stressed the need for member states to step-up their collective climate actions in line with the request of the secretary general.

On the water sector, President Buhari revealed that Nigeria would issue a green bond for irrigation and construct multi-purpose dams for power, irrigation and water supply.

The Nigerian leader also disclosed that Nigeria had embarked on diversification of its energy sources from dependence on gas-powered system to hydro-solar, wind, biomass and nuclear sources.
