WHAT'S GOING ON HERE ?
When Nigeria became independent from the British colonial rulers in 1960, the population was 45 million people. Now it is 200 million. In 2050 the population will be 400 million. Already, 63 million people across Nigeria do not have access to safe water. This will mean there will be less clean water and less farming land. Diseases will spread more easily.
Our rivers, creeks and swamps should be home to water buffalo, pygmy hippos, crocodiles and elephants.
