If Lake Chat goes into extinction, the world will pay dearly- President warns

President Buhari has warned that the world would pay deadly if Lake Chad is allowed to go into extinction.

Buhari, who said this yesterday in Abuja while declaring open the International Conference on Lake Chad, also warned against unilateral decisions by member-countries to restore the lake.

He said: “The world would pay a steep prize if stakeholders choose to result to unilateral actions in the pursuit of selfish interest if we collectively fail to rise boldly to this challenge of recharging the lake.”

The President, represented by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, spoke on the theme “Saving the Lake Chad to revitalise the Basin’s Ecosystem for Sustainable Livelihood, Security and Development.”
