President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday attended High Level Meeting of the International Conference on Lake Chad Basin in Abuja on 28th Feb 2018.

President Muhammadu Buhari had on Monday gave a warning to the international community, that the world would pay dearly if the Lake Chad was allowed to go into extinction.

But speaking at the opening of the high-level meeting of the International Conference on the Lake Chad Basin in Abuja on Wednesday, he stressed the need for political commitment from leaders of the countries in the basin to revive the fast-shrinking lake.

He said: “We must treat the issues of the Lake Chad with the urgency they deserve and show the needed political commitment towards reviving the Lake.

“Together let us share this mission of rescuing the Lake Chad Basin with a renewed vigour, determination and international collaboration as our inaction or delay will continue to accelerate the deteriorating standard of living of millions of our people with dire consequences on our continent and the World at large.The time to act is now.

“The time to bail out the region is now. The time to show our humanity is now.”

He, therefore, emphasized the need for countries within the basin to collaborate with international organizations, donors and foreign countries, to achieve the goal of reviving the lake.
