From Mohammad Ibrahim, Kaduna
The Metro Environmental Cleaning and Awareness Initiative has appealed to all relevant bodies on the need for tree planting, particularly within the city Centres and townships of Kaduna state and across the Nigeria.
The group believes that such trees if planted will provide shades from son and also absorb the ever increasing carbon-mono oxide from vehicles and other pollutants on the major roads.
This was contained in a statement signed by its Chairman Jibril Suleiman and made available to news men in the state.
According to him, trees have excellent abilities of absorbing carbon and emitting oxygen into the environment.
“This singular ability of trees planting has tremendous benefits for the environment. The government and other stakeholders should critically consider this initiative.
“The government, corporate bodies and other stakeholders must be in the vanguard of sanitizing the general public on the need of implementing this noble policy.
“On tree planting campaign, the government and other state holders must urgently formulate necessary policies in at safeguarding the environment,” he said.
The group equally called on corporate bodies such as Telecommunication firms to use media to disseminate this awareness to their subscribers.
