An orchard started about 7 months ago for the 10/10/10 event was finally unveiled yesterday at exactly 4:32 pm Nigerian time at Government Girls Unity College, in the city of Bauchi, Northern Nigeria. The orchard unveiled by the Federal controller, Federal Ministry of Environment who represented the senator representing Bauchi South Senatorial District. He was accompanied by the district head of Bauchi (Traditional Title Holder), Hon. Commissioner of Environment, Hon.

One thing that captured our mind was the statement of commitment made by the State Director of School services Mrs. Asma’u Fate where said “as from Monday 11th October, 2010, the climate change clubs members would be given 5 minutes each week to speak to and enlighten their peers about climate change”.
