"By destroying the forests througg indiscriminate tree fellings, environmental banditry, charcoal productions, the entire ecosystem is in danger, creating natural imbalances, and posing serious threats to our communities. Sadly, this is fast becoming a norm in the northern part of the state, so, we are soliciting for your support to combat these nuisance and return normalcy" she said.
