The federal government has reassured international partners that Nigeria has set a clear pathway to achieving the United Nation’s vision of clean energy access for all by 2030 and net zero emissions by 2050.
The Honourable Minister of State, Power, Goddy Jedy-Agba, OFR gave the assurances while giving his remarks at the ongoing “Sustainable Energy For All Forum” at Kigali, Rwanda.
Jedy-Agba noted that together with other African countries, Nigeria understands what will be needed to achieve decarbonisation, clean and affordable energy for all and is leaving no stone unturned to ensure the target is met.
According to him, “Nigeria has demonstrated its commitment to a clean energy future by setting a clear pathway to achieve its energy access and transition targets.
“Together with other countries from across Africa, we have articulated what will be required to achieve both decarbonisation and clean, affordable energy for all, which is essential for Nigeria to achieve its development goals.”
He maintained that President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration has invested huge resources in renewable energy and set a solid foundation for the rapid development of the sector.
