Kaduna State Chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in collaboration with Christian Awareness initiative of Nigeria (CHAIN) has commenced a -3 day sensitization programme for Pastors, Christian Youth leaders and women on the impacts and mitigation of climate change.

Speaking during the flag-off of the programme, the chairman, Kaduna state chapter of CAN Reverend Samuel Kujyat, said the programme was conceived to encourage pastors to inculcate issues of climate change into their preaching with a view of educating the masses.

He stressed need for Nigerians to take the issues of climate change very serious and to always work toward encouraging sustainable development.

In his address, the Director of CHAIN, Reverend John Joseph Hayab said the programme was aimed at raising the awareness of the church about the climate change.

“This is something that those of us from the angle of church have a very low understanding of the subject because most Christian even believe that climate change is because we sin and God is angry with us so the climate is no longer cooperating with us.

“But if you go further and deeper, you will find out that it is more than that. You don’t need God to come down from Haven to replace trees that you cut them down. People are refusing to take care of what God has given and that why we embarked on this programme,” he said.

Delivering a paper titled;  ‘Reality of Climate change in Northern Nigeria,’ the chairman of Development Association for Renewable Energy (DARE), Mallam Yahaya Ahmed said the major climate change challenge facing the Northern part of the country is the issue of desert encroachment.
