Governor Amosun stated this, on Tuesday, December 8, in a session with environmental experts at the ongoing 2015 United Nations climate change Conference of Parties (COP 21) held in Paris, France.
The governor said: “The way to go if we really want to come out of the current economic crisis is through agroforestry. It will save our environment and provide jobs for our people.
“If we are going to get it right as a nation back home, we need to diversify our economy. We are blessed with natural and human resources and the best way to diversify is via agriculture that will lead us into industrialisation.”
Governor Amosun also expressed joy with the global focus on sustainable and eco-friendly development which the COP 21 represents.

Amosun further said: “I am happy and excited about the COP 21 conference because everyone is putting attention on the environment.
“It is so important to us in Ogun State because we have the largest base of industries in Nigeria and therefore we need to look into energy sources that are environmentally friendly for the industries.”

He also seized the occasion to stress the fact that in Ogun state, the era of uncurbed carbon emissions by companies is over.
Governor Amosun said this was necessary due to the long term effects of such carbon emissions on the livelihoods and health of the people.
The Ogun state governor also called on global investors who are not yet in Ogun state to make the Gateway state their destination of choice.

He noted that the state was a perfect destination for local and foreign investors because it is blessed with human capital, access to major markets in Lagos and the entire West African sub-region as well as investors’ friendly policies.

COP21, also known as the 2015 Paris Climate Conference, for the first time in over 20 years of UN negotiations, was aimed at achieving a legally binding and universal agreement on climate with the aim of keeping global warming below 2°C.
It has been described as one of the largest international conferences ever held in France. The conference billed to hold from November 30 to December 11, is expected to attract close to 50,000 participants including 25,000 official delegates from government, intergovernmental organisations, UN agencies, NGOs and civil society.
Meanwhile, barely two days from when Chief Ralph Uwazuruike renamed the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign state of Biafra (MASSOB) to Biafra Independent Movement (BIM), the acclaimed new leadership of the former has reiterated that he remained expelled from the separatist group.
