A Non-governmental Organisation known as the New Environment Cooperation has called for more collaboration with the Media and other stakeholders in tackling the issue of climate change in Nigeria.

The Chief Executive Officer of the Oragnisation, Mrs.

Nancy Durodola who made the call, said this would be achieved by utilising the Social media and other appropriate avenue.

She said; ”the New Environment Corporation is embarking on a campaign with relevant stakeholders to educate people at the grassroots level what climate change is all about and its implications to the environment.


“A lot has been done by all stakeholders on climate change and other related environmental issues with little impact at the grassroots reason been that an average man thinks that climate change issues are for the elite because of the terminologies we used, so we are leading a campaign to bring climate change to earth at the grassroots,” Mrs.

Durodola stated.

 
According to her, ”Climate Change is affecting the world, hence the need to engaged the Media and relevant stakeholders for more collaboration.


“We can testify from the side of the world that  we are seriously  hit by the issues of Climate Change, a lot of people because of drought are migrating  from the rural areas, some of them used to farm so if their farms is yielding they don’t need to move away    they stay but because of Climate Change what happen a lot are migrating rural areas to urban area.

” She explained.

Insecurity
Mrs Durodola stressed the need for the government to provide a conducive atmosphere for the people to live in, while calling on the Nigerian government to put an end to the insecurity ravaging the country.

She said issues of killings and kidnapping in the country are enormous and heart-aching in the heart of everyone.

”The aggrieved ones amongst us that are kidnapping and killing mercilessly have been talking, it’s high time for the government to listen to what their grievances are so that the blood bath in this country will stop .

The world today is been hit by the effect of these climate change and we must act fast.

Part of the crisis we’re experiencing in our nation today and other parts of the world is as a result of climate change for instance ,” Mrs.

Nancy explained.

She also appealed to bandits to shed their swords to stop the bloodshed, for the sake of the Internally Displaced Persons in the different parts of the country.

”It is hurtful but we pray that we should allow peace to reign, so that issues can be resolved amicably,” she stated.

Mrs Durodola believed that Nigeria has a great potential, with human capacity and resources to drive the nations forward, urging the government to invest more in Sports, Film Industry and key Ministry as well as Parastatals  that deals with youths to engage them.

According to her the internally Displaced Person are suffering following the cause of the insecurity.

The Chairman of the Organisation, Mr Emmanuel Durodola said; ”it is the responsibility of the government to provide security to it citizens.

”There are other technologies the government can use to fish out the Bandits terrorising the country as it is done in the developing countries.


Mr Durodola said negotiating with the bandits to know their grievance would also help in curbing the menace of insecurity in the country.

Relief materials 
The Organisation also donated some relief materials to some Internally Displace Persons, IDP’s to bring succour to the people affected by insecurity in Samaru Kataf IDP, Zankwo in Kaduna State and Daudu II in Benue State.
