On the sideline of the ongoing COP22 in Morocco, Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari, reveals his country’s plan of action to support the climate change pledge.

The Leadership reported that President Buhari stated this through a statement, presented by the minister of environment, Amina Mohammed, at Africa Day — a side event organised by the African Union in collaboration with Nigeria and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).

The theme of the event was titled Moving from Commitment to Action with the Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) and the Africa Renewable Energy Initiative (AREI).

He said: “We have developed the Sustainable Energy for All Action Agenda and the National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP) among other policies that are contained in our Vision 30-30-30, with the aim to increase on-grid power capacity from the current level of about 5GW to 30GW by the year 2030, with at least 30% of this capacity coming from renewable energy technologies.”
