Nigeria Harps On A Just Transition Towards Global Net-Zero Emissions Target


Nigeria’s Vice President Yemi Osinbajo says Nigeria is on the path of ensuring more access to affordable, reliable energy for its populace, as well as transitioning to the use of cleaner energy in line with the net-zero emissions global target, but an end of international funding for gas as a fossil fuel would create dire challenges for gas-producing countries especially in Africa.
The Vice President noted that Nigeria is already transitioning from petrol to natural gas, which is accepted more or less as a transition fuel, the bridge to renewable energy.
He says Nigeria supports the goal of the Commonwealth in outlining responsible transition pathways to decarbonize and achieve net and negative zero emissions.
