Plant a tree, save the environment for humanity – Nigerian Minister

Interior Minister Rauf Aregbesola has urged the people of Ondo state to plant a tree against deforestation and curb the effects of climate change on the environment to save humanity. The minister’s media adviser, Sola Fasure, made this known in a statement on Saturday in Abuja. According to him, Mr. Aregbesola gave the advice during the tree-planting campaign at Akoko Anglican Grammar School (AKOGRAMS), Arigidi, Ondo State, as part of activities to mark the school’s diamond jubilee. The minister highlighted the benefits of tree planting for the conservation and restoration of forests to mitigate the challenges of climate change. This, he noted, was in line with the current administration’s Green Recovery Nigeria 2020 Program. Mr. Aregbesola advised against felling trees and urged the management and students of the school and the host community to consider the forest surrounding the school as an endowment and strive to maintain it for humanity. The minister recognized the great and successful products of the school in different fields of human endeavour, attributing them to the strong educational foundation they benefited from while at the school. “Education is the only legacy we can leave our children. We all owe our founding institution a responsibility to care, support and identify for the role they played in our success. “Nothing can be too big or small to support our Alma Mater, no matter who we are or what we have become,” he said. Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State listed his administration’s achievements in infrastructure development across the state, especially in primary education. He praised the minister and the AKOGRAMS Alumni Association for their contributions to the school and called for their support of primary schools, which are the foundation on which other levels of education rest.
