    “Unless they are properly tackled, the world will no longer be the same and our generation will not be able to pass unto the upcoming generation what we inherited from our ancestors in terms of environment which is crucial.

    “This training is part of the mitigation process because women were being taught how to use energy sufficient stoves which would help in ensuring that energy consumption is minimised .

    “ The women can equally serve as advocates and positive partners in the fight against climate change and global warming ,” he explained.

    NAN reports that each of the trainees received one energy efficient stove, undisclosed amount of cash and certificate.

    Commission trains 300 women on using energy-efficient stoves in N/East

    The North-East Development Commission (NEDC) has begun a two-day training of 300 rural women on using energy-efficient stoves in the region.

    The Managing Director of the Commission, Mohammed Alkali said this at the inauguration of the training exercise on Thursday in Maiduguri.

    He said that 50 women were been selected to participate in the exercise in Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Taraba and Yobe. Alkali said the exercise was being conducted simultaneously as part of effort to enlighten the public on dangers associated with felling of trees as well as encourage use of energy-efficient stoves to mitigate effects of climate  change.

    According to him, the North-East region exemplifies typical extreme case of the country’s version of climate change, reveling in ecological imbalance accompanied by devastating consequences.

    He said the region has been grappling with an unprecedented number of “climate induced migrations” occasioned by the multifaceted effects of climate change.

    The NEDC boss listed the  effects to include desertification, drought, flood and shrinkage of the Lake Chad basin – which put the region in a dire strait.

    “We are seeing the effects of climate change that has exacerbated different conflicts in the North-East from the insurgency to communal conflicts over the years.

    “The drying up of the Lake Chad, the southward expansion of the Sahara Desert, floods being experienced across many states, menace of the clashes necessitated by the diminishing availability of forests and grazing lands, are all obvious problems associated with climate change in the region,” he said.

    Also speaking,  Hajiya Falmata Mustapha, a Director in the Lake Chad Research Institute, said the women would be sensitised on effects of climate change and how use of energy-efficient stoves.

    She said the participants would be provided with fuel-efficient stoves at the end io the exercise, adding that it was designed with 43 per cent thermal efficiency.

    The Director urged Borno government and other stakeholders to work towards enhancing access to energy-efficient stove to control environmental pollution and deforestation.

    One of the beneficiaries, Talatu Dibal lauded the gesture, adding that it had exposed them to understanding dangers associated and how to mitigate its impact on the environment.

    He urged the beneficiaries to make judicious use of the knowledge acquired, the starter packs given to them and to train people under them.

    Goni appealed to them not to sell out the kits given to them, so as not to ”regret their action  in future.

    ”As part of the commission’s efforts in impacting positively on the citizens, it  decided to establish Information Communication and Technology (ICT) centers in each of the senatorial districts in North-east to train more youth.

    ”Government alone cannot employ everybody, hence the need for people to get skills to help themselves, family and their communities, as well as to be employers of labour.

    ” Prof. Mohammed Ajiya, Managing Director, Digital Bridge Institute, explained that the beneficiaries underwent a three- week training and exposed them on how to provide effective services in their profession.

    200 patients benefit from Borno’s free kidney dialysis monthly – Official

    No fewer than 200 patients benefit from Borno’s free kidney dialyses monthly.

    Dr Garga Adama, Head of Department, Internal Medicine, at the State Specialist Hospital where the dialyses take place, made this known to the News Agency of Nigeria in Maiduguri on Monday.

    He said Gov. Babagana Zulum instituted the free dialysis programme two years ago following an upsurge of kidney diseases in the state.

    “When we started two and half years ago with 10 machines, we were doing an average of 40 sessions per week, but now we do more than 90 sessions per week; that is 360 sessions per month.

    “There is no discrimination.

    You don’t have to be an indigene of Borno to benefit.

    “Dialysis costs about N40,000 per session and many patients need to do two sessions per week, meaning if a patient is to pay he has to spend about N360,000 monthly to survive,’’ Garga said.

    He expressed regret, however, that inflation in the cost of materials was affecting government’s funding which used to cover 240 to 300 sessions monthly.

    Garga urged Gov. Zulum to increase the funding for sustenance of the programme as the number of patients was on the rise.

    “I also urge philanthropists and organisations like the Northeast Development Commission (NEDC) and many of the national and international health organisations intervening in the health sector in Borno to support the programme,’’ Garga pleaded.

    He advised members of the public to observe healthy lifestyles and to desist from self-medication and the consumption of hard drugs and some local concoctions that could affect the kidney.

    Garga also advised on the need to take more fluid in places like Borno that has hot weather as it helps to clear toxins from the kidney.

    One of the beneficiaries of the free dialysis, Bitrus, said he started enjoying the programme since July. “I thank God and all those involved in making this life-saving programme a reality.

    “I also call for support from well-to-do people and organisations for the programme so that it can cover drugs as I spend not less than N20,000 weekly on drugs,’’ Bitrus said.

    Another beneficiary, Hauwa, also urged for more support for the programme from philanthropists to cover drugs even if it is at the level of subsidy.

    A third beneficiary, Ibrahim, also solicited for support to subsidise cost of drugs.

    NEDC trains 30 youths on stove fabrication

    The North East Development Commission (NEDC) has commenced a one-week training for 30 youths on fabrication of efficient stoves and briquette production in the region.

    Speaking during the commencement of the training in Bauchi on Monday, Mr Adamu Lawan, Head of Environment and Natural Resources, NEDC, said the training is titled `waste to wealth’ under the commission.

    He explained that the trainees, five each from Borno, Adamawa, Bauchi, Gombe, Yobe and Taraba states, consisted of artisans and scavengers that would be effectively taught how to fabricate energy efficient stoves.

    According to him, the stove is environmentally friendly and acceptable globally, adding that the model of the stove was initially adopted in India.

    “Since the inception of the commission, the main mandate is to develop the North East, and part of the development is job creation.

    “We have seen that there are so many graduates on the streets, there are no white collar jobs, so we start thinking outside the box.

    “The trainer here was in Kenya and he emerged one of the best in West Africa in fabrication of this stove.

    “So, we feel this is a very good idea for us in the North East to train our people, so that they will be producing and selling it themselves to earn a living and to also become employers of labour,” he said.

    Lawan, who stated that most of the stoves used in the country emit carbon monoxide, however, explained that the type of stove that would be fabricated by the trainees would be environmentally friendly.

    He added that it had been tested and the briquette, which is like the charcoal they would be using is from solid and agricultural wastes.

    “It is not going to impact the environment negatively in any way,” Lawan said.

    Also, Mr Saleh Yahmut, the trainer, said that the fuel for the stove would be extracted from rice husks, sugarcane peels, groundnut shells, coconut shells and sawdust.

    He added that every available wastes from the farm or from the house was a potential raw material for the fuel.

    “With this innovation, there will be no more felling of trees,” he said.

    One of the beneficiaries who spoke on behalf of others, Yaku Ismail, appreciated NEDC for the kind gesture and promised to listen attentively to what would be taught and make effective use of the skills acquired.
