Deforestation: Osun NIPR plants 60 trees

By Michael Ofulue, Osogbo

In a bid to combat the high rate of deforestation in Osun State, the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR), Osun Chapter, has planted 60 trees as part of its 60th anniversary celebrations.

The state chairman, Ademola Adesoji, emphasized the importance of tree planting to offset the environmental degradation caused by deforestation.

The initiative is part of a nationwide effort, with 60 trees planted in each of the 36 states and Abuja.

The Commissioner for Environment and Sanitation, Mayowa Adejonrin, commended the Osun NIPR’s efforts, revealing that the state government has approved the planting of 100,000 trees to tackle deforestation.

The National Council on Climate Change has also chosen Osun State’s Agoowu Forest Reserve for a €20 million afforestation project.

The tree planting exercise was preceded by a road walk from Ogoluwa to the Osun River bank at Aregbe area, Osogbo, where the Commissioner kicked off the planting exercise.

This initiative demonstrates the collective commitment to environmental responsibility and sustainability in Osun State.
