Director of Programmes, Christian Rural and Urban Development Association of Nigeria (CRUDAN), Tobi Salawu, has called on Nigerians to imbibe the culture of tree planting to help the society and humanity in the area of health and happiness.
Speaking at the World Environment Day celebration in Jos the Plateau State capital, Mr Salawu said the world has been affected by preventable degredation through environmental pollution and hazzards which are harmful to human health.
The Director said it is imperative to imbibe the culture of environmental cleanliness, which he said would boost the health of the citizenry inhabiting such environment.
He warned against the indiscriminate dumping of waste, such as used bottle water container and scratched water nylon both on land and in the seas among other places that could cause harm to the ecosystem, and the people by extension.
Mr Salawu who stressed that tree planting is one of the measures to tackle environmental degredation, described it as encouraging because it guards against many hazards like erosion, heavy rainfall, moderation of harsh climate condition among others.
