Environmentalist and climate change activist, Desmond Majekodumi has called on all Nigerians to protect the environment and desist from every activities that endanger it.
Majekodumi, who is also the Founder of Lekki Urban Forestry and Animal Shelter Initiative (LUFASI) Nature Park said the call is important because of the need to protect the environment and to keep it safe for the present and future generation.
Addressing journalists at LUFASI Nature Park, Lekki, during a media tour organized by Lagos Business School (LBS) and Nestle Nigeria, Majekodumi called on Nigerians to plant more trees, stop pollution, protect forest and live sustainable lifestyle.
According to him, the environment need to be sustained just as humans can not live without oxygen.
“Stop pollution, preserve biodiversity, protect forests, plant more trees, live a sustainable lifestyle, mitigate and adapt now.”
“We are no longer protecting our life support system which is the nature given by God. Humanity is waging war on nature. The scripture says we are to replenish the earth not to destroy the life support system. If we don’t have a healthy environment, no one will survive or enjoy a long life,” he said.
