Kaduna Government distributes 1,045 stoves to women

The Kaduna State Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources on Thursday distributed 1,045 cooking stoves to women in the state.

Malam Ibrahim Hussaini the state’s Commissioner for Environment made the disclosure while presenting the stoves to women from the 23 Local Government Areas (LGAs) of the state in Kaduna.

He was represented by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Mr Steven Joseph.

He said the stoves would be distributed to food vendors, widows, women leaders, and women trained by the Women Initiative for Sustainable Development (WISE) in the 255 political wards of the state.

Hussaini said that the gesture became necessary due to the global outcry on climate change as well as efforts to reduce over-dependence on fuelwood as source of energy.
