KNSG joins forces with organisations on sanitation
By Janet Onigah
Kano State Government would collaborate with all Governmental and Non- Governmental Organisations (NGOs), in order to enhance cleanliness and to sanitise the entire environment of Kano State.
The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Environment, Engr. Hussam Musa Karry made the remark when he received delegates from the Nigerian Metrological Agency (NIMET) in his office on a courtesy visit recently.
Engr. Karry emphasised the need for partnership between the Ministry and NIMET in the area of desert encroachment, environmental pollution and host of others, so as to enhance and improve environmentally related activities in the State.
He therefore called on them to periodically update the Ministry on the prediction of seasonal rainfall and other aspects of weather and climate related matters via the agency’s publication.
Earlier in his address, the leader of the delegation, Dr. Mansur Bako Matazu had said they were at the Ministry in order to invite them for the public presentation of 2020 Seasonal Rainfall Prediction (SRP) which NIMET did and published in the first quarter of every year.
He added that the 2020 prediction will highlight vital weather and climate information that may affect socio-economic activities in the air, land, water transportation, agriculture, water resources, disaster management, among others, according to a statement by Abbas Habeeb Abbas, the spokesperson of the ministry.
