The Deputy Director Forestry Kaduna State Ministry of Environment, Hajia Asama’u Adamu has warned people against indiscriminate bush burning.
Speaking to newsmen in Kaduna, the deputy director lamented the indiscriminate setting of bush fire especially during the harmattan period that is adversely affecting people.
According to her, such unpatriotic act is also causing havoc to farmers and neighbouring villages, as well as government’s plantations.
Hajiya Asama’u further cautioned against illegal felling of trees which is also promoting environmental degradation and climate change, thereby exposing the soil to various hazards.
The deputy director added that the law prohibiting illegal felling of trees in whatever guise is still in force, warning people to steer clear of such negative tendencies.
She then commended the efforts of the Horticultural society in protecting the environment through its activities.
