Members of the Kaduna State House Committee on Environment and Natural Resources said they would move a motion to revive the monthly sanitation exercise and tree planting across the state to address climate change.

The legislators disclosed this in separate interviews with journalists on Tuesday after an engagement meeting with civil society on environmental protection and climate change in Kaduna state.

The Chairman of the committee, Mr Stingo Danlami, said climate change was a serious problem affecting the citizens of the state adding that practical solutions must be employed to mitigate it.

According to him, indiscriminate dumping of waste was found in major cities of the state adding that the reintroduction of monthly sanitation and planting of trees would save the environment.

“We will sensitize the public on laws related to environmental protection and the importance of obeying these laws.

“We agree to bring back monthly sanitation across the state immediately after we resume plenary. It is mandatory to save our environment,” he said.
