In Kaduna State we immediately recognized the need to tackle these environmental challenges. On the 30th of June, 2016 we launched the Keep Kaduna Green Project with the objective of planting at least 3 million trees in 3 years across the state.

This is in addition to the 535 kilometers of shelterbelt of cashew, Shea butter, palm, Jathropha and other economic trees along our borders with Katsina, Zamfara and Kano states, stretching from Kubau,Ikara, Giwa and Birnin Gwari local governments.

We intend to achieve many goals with the project; check desertification, beautify our neighbourhoods and create jobs for those who will nurture these trees.
