Youth Groups Task President Buhari on Climate Change

- Advertisment -

The Nigeria Youth Climate Coalition (NYCC) and the African Youth Initiative on Climate change (AYICC) have commended President Muhammadu Buhari for making Climate Change one of his top Policy actions and expressed hope that the leadership lacked in the years past will be demonstrated especially now that Nigeria transits from Millennium Development Goals to the Sustainable Development Goals.

According to a press release made available to Lagos Daily News,‘When it comes to climate change, people generally look towards experts for solutions forgetting to engage us, young people. As young Nigerians we are more disproportionately affected by the impact of climate change more than any generation and we will not watch as our future is risked by the inactions of our past leaders’.

‘Climate change remain one of the biggest challenge facing the world today, from storms in America to heat waves in India and recalling the 2012 floods in Nigeria that eroded the small gains in development and democracy. We are reminded of need for leadership and the required but urgent and rigorous action on climate change’.

‘We call on the President to focus on investing more in renewable energy which can create millions of job for young people and support local efforts in bridging the inter-generational gap in climate leadership. We also ask the President to give young people a voice in climate decision making at all levels’.
