Over 2.1million Nigerians displaced by Flood
« on: November 16, 2016, 07:41:09 AM »

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday said more that 2.1million people have been displaced by devastating floods in the country since 2012.


According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the President disclosed this in his statement at the 22nd Session of the Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change taking place in Marrakech, Morocco.

The President was quoted as saying that Nigeria has no choice but to key into the global action on climate change.

“In Nigeria for instance, the impact is being felt by the more than 2.1 million people displaced by devastating floods that the country has continued to suffer since 2012.

“If not addressed by 2050, the human and financial cost would be colossal. For us in Nigeria, the larger dimension of the challenge goes beyond emission rights. Survival rights are also at stake,” the President said.

He declared the resolve of the Federal Government to ensure that policies put in place to address climate change will make the country emerge as one of the world’s best examples of how reducing emissions can benefit the environment and the economy.
