 Nasarawa Government set to plant over 20,000 trees in 2018



Nasararwa State Government has purchased more than 20,000 assorted trees seedling for planting to check environmental degradation in the state.

Governor Umaru Al-Makura disclosed this on Saturday while launching the 2018 tree planting campaign in the state, meant to control desertification and degradation.

He explained that the tree planting exercise would start from Lafia, the state capital in view of the population explosion and its attendant environmental pollution through emission that could only be mitigated by afforestation.

He said the tree seedling would be distributed across the divisional forestry offices in the state for easy access for the exercise to be replicated in all the local government areas.

The governor said that the exercises would also create jobs for the teeming youths as most of them would be engaged to nurture the trees planted to maturity.

“We shall be giving 20 trees each to any interested youth to plant and nurture with a stipend of N300 per tree monthly.

“This implies that they would be paid N6000 monthly to ensure that the trees are nurtured and the process would be strictly monitored.

Al-Makura said the exercise was in line with the World Bank and Federal Government’s Reducing Emission from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+) programme, which had been domesticated in the state.
