Nigerian Minister Urges Citizens to Take Climate Change Seriously
The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, has asked Nigerians to take the issue of climate change seriously.
Fashola also suggested how to address the issue while speaking on “Urban design and climate change” at the first Nigeria Urban Design Forum on Thursday.
The forum was conveyed by a former Lagos State Commissioner for Town Planning and Urban Development, Mr. Toyin Ayinde, a statement said.
Fashola said evidence had demonstrated that not only was the threat of climate change real, but that its impact was already being felt and that human beings were perhaps the most vulnerable.
