Observation

This question was popular among the candidates. However, their performance in the question was just fair because many of those who answered the question could not draw good outline map of Nigeria. This made them lose precious marks, as such candidates could not properly locate the industrial zones and the industrial products. Many of the candidates that answered the question were able to highlight the importance of lumbering to Nigeria.
However, some could not explain the major problems arising from lumbering in Nigeria. The expected answers include:
deforestation;
desertification;
extinction of endangered species;
ecological distortion.
