Nigeria: UAE Energy Summit - PMB Seeks Global Co-Operation On Climate Change
President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday in Abu Dhabi called for greater global cooperation against the devastating effects of climate change to avert disaster for the human race in the 21st century.
Addressing the opening of the 2016 World Future Energy Summit, President Buhari reaffirmed Nigeria's readiness to work with the United Arab Emirates and rest of the world in a collective effort to mitigate the effects of climate change.
In a statement issued by his special adviser media, Femi Adesina, Buhari said "Africa is already suffering from the consequences of climate change, which include recurrent drought and floods. In Nigeria, the drastic drying up of the Lake Chad to just about 10% of its original size, has negatively impacted on the livelihood of millions of people, and contributed in making the region a hot bed of insurgency.
