GAS FOR TRANSITION”Global Perspectives For A Sustainable Future”



Vice President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, says Nigeria has a strategic and crucial role to play in the transition to a more sustainable energy future that Africa and indeed the world must have in the next few years.

Osinbajo who said this during day two of the Nigeria International Energy Summit in Abuja on Tuesday, explained that no other sector of Nigeria’s economy is as crucial to transition to a more sustainable future as the oil and gas.

Speaking on the theme of this year’s summit, “Global Perspectives for a Sustainable Future,” the Nigerian Vice President noted that Africa can only become the first truly green civilization by recognizing the opportunity early and intentionally developing all the potential around the continent’s abundant natural resources including natural gas, solar and biofuels.

Prof. Osinbajo noted that Nigeria’s Energy Transition Plan is a bold and innovative move that calls for the ramping up of solar deployment to about 5.3 gigawatts per year until 2060.

Africa should use all her resources at hand, hence this conference on global perspectives

He challenged the key sector actors gathered in Abuja for the sixth edition of the Nigeria International Energy Summit to do much of the heavy lifting to get Nigeria to the level of sustainable energy future.

Outside the conference hall, there was a mild drama as a group of protesters carrying placards with different inscriptions struggled with some police personnel in an attempt to the government to discontinue the use of gas as the country’s fuel for transition, but some Energy experts were quick to say that Africa needs energy because of the glaring energy poverty on the continent.
