FG is very serious with climate change issues – Dr. Dahiru

The Director-General of the National Council on Climate Change, Dr Salisu Dahiru, yesterday said that issues revolving around climate change are very dear to the hearts of the Bola Tinubu-led administration.

Dahiru stated this in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, during the South West sensitisation programme on the use of Atmosfair Save80 clean cookstoves, a climate-friendly device.

He said the present administration has recognised that resolving the issues of climate change provides it with ample opportunity to achieve many of its objectives, such as revamping the economy, providing security, and ending the country’s super dependence on fossil fuels.

Dahiru noted  that deforestation is one huge problem through which the country contributes to climate change, saying that the use of this Atmosfair Save80 clean cookstove has the power to reduce by 80 per cent the use of firewood.

Speaking on behalf of the state government, the Director of Special Duties and Climate Change, Ministry of Environment, Mr Egbemuyiwa Olatunji, said the government would always embrace efforts at combating climate change, saying that the present administration had equally distributed 1,000 clean cookstoves to the residents of the state.
