Climate warning

Plastic pollution in Nigeria.

Take a walk or drive through the streets of most Nigerian cities, and you will see plastic waste everywhere. The country's rivers, lakes and ocean are also full of discarded plastic. Nigeria is estimated to generate about 2.5 million tons of plastic waste annually. Plastic accounts for 15% of the total waste generated in Lagos State. The situation is likely to worsen as Nigeria's population grows, from more than 220 million people now to an expected 401 million by the end of 2050. The production of plastic is growing too. Dangote Refinery, the largest petrochemical refinery in Africa, is starting operations in Nigeria in the first quarter of 2023. Aside from refining fuel, the plant will also produce plastic products.

                  Back in 1980's there were no plastics. Their invention has damaged the planet very much. Nobody should be thinking of continuing with their production.

                    Plastic is a real threat to life in the planet and the problem should be dealt with as an emergency.
