Nigeria and many sub-Saharan African countries are yet to appreciate the importance of the environment in almost every facet of life. Nigeria presents a particularly bad case in view of our comparatively large population and high levels of illiteracy and ignorance about environmental factors.
There is also a factor in play; the fact that we jump in at the very top, by being absorbed with equally serious issues of the moment such as Global Warming but we neglect the basic issues of the environment.
