So Sad! 100 Million Nigerians Still Cook With Firewood Despite Risk To Health

The president of Nigerian
Liquefied Petroleum Gas
Association (NLPGA) Dayo
Adeshina said about 30 million households and more
than 100 million Nigerians depend on firewood for cooking.


We learnt that Adeshina said
many Nigerians cook with
firewood in spite of its
attendant collateral damage
to the environment and their
immediate health.


Accordingt o a report by
Premium Times, Adeshina
noted that the use of the LPG,
popularly known as cooking
gas , should be encouraged in
the country to achieve the aims of the Paris climate
change agreement,
facilitated by President
Muhammadu Buhari's
government.


He advised the Nigerian
government to promote the
usage of LPG among
Nigerians. Similarly, Adeshina
commended the government
for the ratification of the
Paris agreement on climate
change. With the ratification of the
pact, the association said,
Nigeria has committed to
reducing greenhouse gas
emissions unconditionally by
20 per cent and conditionally by 45 per cent. The Paris agreement, the
statement added, was
expected to deliver $100
billion per year by 2020 in
support of developing
countries to take climate actions. Adeshina, therefore, enjoined
the government to ensure full
and speedy implementation
of the agreement, adding
that poor implementation
could deny the country its benefits. Ihaza said he has acquired
about 453.9 hectares and
revealed this while speaking
at a forum organised on
Environmental Impact
Assessment (EIA) of the proposed refinery in Benin,
said that the project would
cost over $2 billion.
