In a bid to curb the rising spate of desertification and erosion, the government of Jigawa state is set to distribute 2,5 million tree seedlings

The state Ministry of Environment’s spokesperson Mr Zubairu Sulaiman, disclosed that the seedlings will be distributed free to farmers and residents.

He explained that some of the seedlings would be planted along both state and federal roads in the state.

He added that some would also be planted at government’s premises like hospitals and schools among others.

According to him, the 2020 tree planting campaign would be launched in July in all the 27 Local Government Areas of the state.

Sulaiman said the project was part of the government’s efforts to reduce the menace of erosion and desertification across the state.
