He gave the states as:

1.Kebbi

2. Sokoto

3. Zamfara

3. Katsina

4. Yobe

5.Borno

The aviation Minister warned that the climate change may bring big damage to farming and other ventures, and also cause famine, and tasked the states to adhere to the forecast by the Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NIMET) in order to prevent bad consequences climate change may bring.

Advising farmers, Siriki told them to embark on “soil-moisture conservation techniques” to reduce chances of crop failure during the period.
