Kaduna, April 15,2019 An NGO, Bridge That Gap, has concluded plans to embark on trees planting and sensitisation programme to mark the 2019 World Earth Day.

Bulus, who said the day was usually marked on April 22 annually worldwide, said that her group would be marking it on April 19 because April 22, falls on Easter Monday, which is a public holiday.

“Africa Media Development Foundation (AMDF) is partnering Bridge That Gap to observe the 2019 Earth Day Celebration.

She said that the organisation had already reached out to key ministries relevant to the activities lined up for the day,’’ Bulus said.

According to her, most of the problems mankind is facing in life are either water or environmental related.

She called for the declaration of a state of emergency on the environment sector, with a view to addressing environmental challenges.

The Executive Director, Africa Media Development Foundation, Mr Iliya Kure said that his foundation was partnering to ensure  success of the day.

“As AMDF media partner, we also admonish you (the media) to contribute to the success of the event by covering it.

“We count on your usual support to make this event memorable.

“The 2019 World Earth Day with the “Protect Our Species” seeks to create better understanding on biodiversity conservation and human activities that affects species.
