Delta State’s Hope for a Green World in Nigeria

nigeria_delta_2 The long-time environmental challenges faced by the people of Delta State due to oil mining and industrial pollution will be put to an end soon.

While signing the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), with the non-governmental organization known as Fight Against Desert Encroachment (FADE) in Asaba, the Director General of the Delta State Capital Territory Development Agency (DSCTDA); Mr. Clement Ofuani said that the state will soon commence the creation of green parks and tree corridors. Tree corridors will serve as an area of habitat that can facilitate the movement of small animals, especially birds, from tree to tree.

Mr. Ofounai who signed on behalf of the government explained that the platform involves a deliberate policy of establishing “green parks and tree corridors in and around Asaba, the state capital for a start.”

He urged residents of Asaba to join hands with the agency in not only planting trees and “greening the city” but also by actively cleaning up the environment through better waste management and avoidance of indiscriminate waste disposal.
