US, Nigeria Explore Path Towards Clean Energy Economy

By Mohammed Mohammed

The United States of America (US) and Nigeria through the Federal Government on Thursday began discussion on the transition to clean energy economy.

Nigeria’s Minister of Environment, Barr. Mohammed Abdullahi, while hosting the US Presidential Envoy on Climate and his team led by Mr. John Kerry signed the framework on clean energy demand Initiative to sustain both countries’s drive toward the energy transition plan.

Abdullahi said: “Nigeria is excited to elcome to you and  see how we can explore opportunities for collaboration and effective implementation of the set goals”. 

Speaking further, the Minister reiterated that the administration of President Muhammed Buhari, has made progress in its efforts towards achieving net- zero commitment  by 2060.  

“Part of what we trying to do with the concept of the President is to  pass the National Climate Change Act which will mainstream all climate change issues in Nigeria and involve private sector practitioners in climate change activities” the Minister emphasized

Kerry in his remarks described the signing of the nitiative which started in Glasgow as a way by which companies and countries can make decisions  to implement the buy-in  or the production of green products. This, he added will accelerate the marketplace creation that will help the World transit faster to a clean energy economy in order to deal with the climate crisis.

He underscored that the future and citizens of Nigeria would benefit from cleaner air, and job opportunities that would come with the signing of this pact  with support from the US.

“We would like to explore with you how we can increase the ambition that you have set out already in your Nationally Determined Contribution.” The Envoy assured.
