Benefits of Climate Change Act to Nigerians

The sponsor of the Climate Change Act recently signed by President Muhammadu Buhari, Sam Onuigbo (APC, Abia), says Nigeria stands to gain a lot from the Act.

Speaking in Abuja on Wednesday, he commended Buhari for assenting to the bill.

He said: “This historic development is already creating positive vibes for Nigeria in the international community and is surely a colourful contribution to the global stature of Africa’s most populous country and host to the world’s largest contribution of black people.

“Make no mistake about it, the world is transiting and we must join or wake up in a few decades an impoverished and uninhabitable country with stranded assets”.

According to him, “the first part of the very important journey has been done and there is need for adequate attention by all stakeholders for its proper and full implementation.”
