Why FG Can’t Destroy Forests To Get To Bandits – Lai Mohammed

Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has said that the Federal Government cannot destroy forests because of bandits who use them as hideout.

The Minister who spoke to Channels Television said doing so would be detrimental to climate change.

He, however, said that it will no longer be business as usual for the bandits when necessary things are put in place.

The minister said: “We cannot destroy the forest because of climate change. The better approach is not to destroy the forest because it would affect the eco-system but what we need is better consultation with sub national government and security agencies on how to secure the forest to make them safe for everybody.

“Those forest are used as hideouts but I think with technology today and when all our platforms are delivered, it will no longer be business as usual as the forest will not save those criminals and bandits but again we need collaborative effort of everyone.”
