Wife of the Ogun State Governor, Dr. (Mrs.) Olufunso Amosun has called on youths to explore the potentials and opportunities in the environment sector to earn a living for themselves.
Mrs. Amosun made the call while speaking during the 11th National Council on Environment, with the theme, Unlocking the Investment Opportunities in the Environment Sector Towards Nigeria’s Economic Recovery, Diversification, Growth and Sustainable Development, held in Abeokuta.
Encouraging the youths to embrace the waste to wealth programme, Mrs. Amosun assured that her Green Education for the Youths (GEFTY) Foundation, will not relent in uplifting the status and welfare of the youths and the environment at large.
Speaking on climate change, as a result of continued damage to the ozone layer, thereby endanging the lives of people living within the water basins, the wife of the governor called for concerted efforts towards ensuring the protection and sustenance of the environment.
She called for the breeding of the next set of environmentalists, through proper orientation to sustain the environment and cushion the effects of global warming and climate change.
