Kano Gov activates environmental actions on tree planting, renewable energy

By Faridat Salifu

Kano State Governor Alhaji Abba Kabir Yusuf has initiated a series of ambitious tree planting campaigns and renewable energy projects throughout his first year in office in a transformative move towards environmental sustainability and climate resilience.

His administration’s objective to plant 3 million trees underscores a strategic effort to enhance green cover and mitigate the impact of climate change in the region.


Governor Yusuf’s active participation in four separate tree-planting campaigns within a year highlights his commitment to conservation and sets a standard for environmental leadership.

These initiatives are designed not only to increase green spaces in Kano but also to create shelter beds that support biodiversity and improve air quality.


In tandem with the tree-planting efforts, the governor’s administration has launched an extensive project to install solar-powered street lights across Kano metropolitan areas.

This initiative aims to reduce carbon emissions and promote sustainable energy usage, while also ensuring safer, well-lit streets at night.


Governor Yusuf’s dual focus on reforestation and renewable energy marks a significant stride in addressing climate challenges and fostering a culture of environmental stewardship in Kano State.

His hands-on approach and forward-thinking policies are paving the way for a more sustainable and resilient future for the region.
