The executive director of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Mr Erik Solheim has stated that though the shrinking of lake chad is a complicated matter, the UN would assist Nigeria in recovering greater part of Lake.

He stated this yesterday when he led members of the UN family on a courtesy visit to the ministry of environment headquarters in Abuja.

Solheim noted that it’s impossible for the United Nations to address the entire environmental challenges alone in Nigeria but could support local actions to resolve the problems.

He stated that the UNEP report pledged an initial $1bn for the clean-up of oil impacted sites in Ogoni land and other areas in the Niger Delta region adding that in cleaning up the areas, there is a need for federal government to hire supreme expertise from construction industry, cement industry, maritime and among others for efficient exercise.
