Nigeria Begins 5m Tree-Planting Campaign

Cross River State Governor Ben Ayade has said his administration will plant five million trees to support afforestation and climate change.

The governor spoke yesterday in Calabar, the state capital, when he kick-started the Green Carnival, the first in Africa.

He said: “Calabar is going green, introducing urban afforestation, which is a classical departure from what we know. That is why we have the first green police in Africa.”
