Nasarawa bans sales, use of charcoal to protect environment

The Nasarawa State Government has banned the use and sales of charcoal in the state to protect the environment.

Mr Aliyu Agwai, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources, announced this while addressing newsmen on Saturday in Lafia.

He said that the process of producing charcoal is harmful to the environment by destroying the climate and increasing global warming.

Agwai noted that the burning of charcoal, especially, would produce harmful emissions.

“Cutting trees can result in the loss of habitat for animal species, which can harm the ecosystems.

“Almost all the land animals and plants live in forests and many cannot survive the deforestation that destroys their homes,” he observed.

  1. Do these people really face the realities. What will they use. How can they afford what is available. The government has never cared for the citizens so one of you can wake up to say any rubbish.
