The Senator representing Ondo South, Dr Jimoh Ibrahim, has said that there is a need for African countries to sign climate change liability agreements with all developed countries that are responsible for carbon emissions in Africa.

He decried the attempts by advanced nations which are causing carbon emissions to merely engage in climate change discourse and evade issues that bother signing liability agreements.

Ibrahim spoke in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), at the 28th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28) at the weekend, according to a statement by his media office.

He noted that if the developed nations paid compensation to African countries on the impact of climate change on the continent, it would help Africa to offset its huge foreign debts.

He noted that combustion and emissions from industrial wastes required no visa to cross international borders and settle on the continent of Africa.

He said, “We don’t produce cars in Africa, but the whole world uses cars. These cars are produced in Germany, America, Russia, China and India.

“Imagine the number of cars in the world and the resultant consequences of burning fossil fuel are the climatic disasters we are faced with in Africa.

“Many people on the continent of Africa are currently facing unexplainable medical issues that defy treatments as a result of inhaling carbon dioxide rather than oxygen.

“It is a proven fact that emissions from developed countries do not need to visit Nigeria’s embassy or any African countries’ embassies before gaining entry into the continent.

“It is imperative and as a matter of urgency for developed countries to sign liability agreements with African countries that bear the brunt of their activities to cushion the effects economically.”
