On Friday, Governor Umaru Bago presented a comprehensive green economy vision at the COP28 Climate Summit in the United Arab Emirates.
Governor Bago emphasized the government’s commitment to environmental conservation, management of carbon sink assets, sustainable resource management, renewable energy development, inclusivity, and private sector-led job creation, particularly in green sectors, in outlining the key mandates of the green economy initiative.
The governor emphasized the state’s commitment to long-term sustainability by announcing plans to plant one billion trees to sequester carbon credits.
He stated that the plan will cover 760,000 hectares of land in four to five years.
Governor Bago announced intentions to build over 100 similar estates across the state, with the goal of strategically managing water resources, cultivating crops, creating job opportunities, and generating income for locals.
