Activist urges CSOs, citizens to ask presidential candidates’ plans for climate change

An Environment Activist Rev David Ugolor has urged civil society organizations in Nigeria and the Citizens to ask presidential candidates about their plans towards climate change.

He asserted this during the TVC Breakfast Show to discuss the Aftermath of COP27 yesterday.

Rev. Ugolor who is the Executive Director of Africa Network for Environment and Economic Justice, ANEEJ, stressed that climate change is a big issue that needs to be addressed by every elected government and as preparations are in top gear ahead of the 2023 general elections, there is a need to engage on issues around Climate change.

The Environment Activist noted that African countries didn’t find their way in COP27 because of a power imbalance between developed and developing countries, and there is now the need to mobilize ahead of COP28, saying Africa needs to put their house in order.

It would be recalled that Rev. Ugolor led a Group of Over Eighty  Global Civil Society Organisations and Seven leading environmental activists drawn from around the world to endorse a joint letter calling on the  Nigerian Government and all Governments supporting Oil and Gas extraction in the Niger Delta to offer significant financing for loss and damages for the people of Niger Delta and other host communities at the just concluded COP27 in Sharm el-Sheikih.
