A university don, Prof. Makwin Makut, has called on the Nigerian government to key into the development of bioenergy to safeguard health of Nigerians and the environment.
Makut, a Professor of Applied and Environmental Microbiology, Nasarawa State University Keffi (NSUK), made the appeal during a lecture.
He spoke on “Eco-Friendly Microbial Products For Health Of The Environment”
He said such would not only ensure a clean healthy environment, but lead to conversion of waste to useful products that can be sold to generate wealth.
“Nigeria needs to key into the development of bioenergy in order to safeguard the health of its environment.
The need for relevant governmental and non-governmental agencies to be interested in waste management, especially municipal solid waste management cannot be overemphasised,” he said.
