Revive Lake Chad, Refugee migration will stop – Buhari advises at COP21

Muhammadu Buhari has called on world leaders to revive the Lake Chad and save communities dependent on the river from extinction, saying that this will stop migration to Europe.

Buhari is currently in French capital where he and over 150 other leaders of the nations are gathered with the aim of reaching a new and universal climate change agreement.

On the eve of the COP21 conference, 184 countries covering around 95 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions had delivered their national climate action plans to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

Nigerian president said that developed countries should make strong financial donations to the 14 billion dollars immediately needed.

President Buhari stated this while addressing a high level meeting on “Climate Change Challenges and Solutions in Africa”, on the sidelines of the on-going UN Climate Change Conference, COP 21.
