Sterling One Foundation has called on the Nigerian government not to waste any time in adopting resolutions that would quickly mitigate the effect of the climate crisis in Nigeria.
In a statement titled “Waste No More Time” and signed by Olapeju Ibekwe, head of the Foundation also urged the international community to fulfil its obligations to African countries and others who contributed little to climate change but are adversely affected by the crisis.
“We must waste no more time because we have little or no time at all to waste, this is the time to accelerate action on climate change,” he was quoted as saying. “Time is running out, and nature is in emergency mode. There has never been a more urgent need to revive the damaged ecosystems than now and we need urgent action to address these pressing issues,”.
Ibekwe urged the government to shift from “harming the planet to healing it, adding that this can only be achieved through concerted efforts and strategic partnership across governments and development organisations.
