The Governor Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu has called on all to heed to this year’s theme of International Mother Earth Day “Restore our Earth” celebrated every 22nd of April by imbibing sustainable procedures in the manufacturing and application of Goods we consume.
In a series of tweets on the event, Governor Ikpeazu maintained that people can reverse the assault on mother earth by changing the way they live to avoid future generations suffering unimaginable consequences.
