Nigeria considering Nuclear Energy Investment.
Written by News Room on November 10, 2021
President Muhammadu Buhari says Nigeria will consider investing in nuclear energy as part of efforts to reduce dependence on fossil fuels and adapt to climate change.
A statement signed by presidential spokesman Garba Shehu said the President made the remarks in his message to rich nations at the COP26.
Meanwhile, the President urged rich countries to support less developed countries as the race towards net-zero carbon emissions heats up.
According to Buhari, rich countries have a track-record of lying about their own climate sustainability progress while expecting less rich economies to make larger sacrifices.
He further called for the funding of more fossil fuel projects, particularly gas, in Nigeria as the country makes its transition into cleaner sources of energy.
