PRIORITIZING SANITATION AND AFFORESTATION IN BENUE STATE NIGERIA

Nigeria / 27 sep 2019

The honest truth about my locality is that people still need to be educated about the values of simple exercises that can aid us combat climate change. Benue State hosts one of Nigeria's Biggest Rivers - each year since 2012 we experience flood disasters. Investigations show that poor drainage systems and blocked drainages form some of the major causes to this menace. It is therefore imperative to reorient citizens on the adverse effects of poor sanitation practices and deforestation. I hope to partner with all youth groups in the state. The highlight of the event shall be to inaugurate the state youth sanitation and afforestation team.
