The World Health Organisation has been quoted as projecting 1.5 million annual premature deaths in Nigeria due to household air pollution from traditional cooking stoves, National Coordinator of the Renewable Energy project of the Federal Ministry of Environment, Mrs. Bahijjatu Abubakar, has said.

Quoting from a WHO report she told the News Agency of Nigeria on Tuesday in Abuja that the projection could affect the world at large, especially the sub-Saharan Africa.

Abubakar said the WHO data also predicted that the premature death rate would be the larger than that caused by malaria, tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS.
