The Secretary to the Federal Government of Nigeria, Baba Gana Kingibe, has said that Nigeria will take anticipatory measures towards averting climatic disasters that have recently ravaged other lands. Kingibe gave the commitment as the Nigerian Senate Committee on Environment and Ecology expressed concern that the country could lose billions of dollars from the diversion of direct foreign investments from the country on account of climatic problems.

“There now appears to be a universal consensus that climate change is a natural phenomenon that has to be accepted and planned for by all nations, the failure to do which will hasten on a global scale, the calamity and disaster now afflicting only a few countries as we have seen in recent times.Nigeria will do well to position herself to benefit from infrastructure, environmental protection and sustainability projects as she begins to implement these mechanisms.”
