Tinubu is scheduled to speak at the African Climate Summit

Today, September 5, at 11 a.m., President Bola Tinubu is slated to speak at the African Climate Summit’s third plenary session, “Charting a Vision: Investment Opportunities for Green Growth.”

Who will represent the president, who will be at the G-20 Summit in India, is not yet known.

Dozens of African Heads of State and Government will attend the presidential opening, which will kick off today’s session.

Delegates, ministers, and presidents have arrived at the center, and security is tight.

Along with Senegal President Macky Sall, Kenyan President William Ruto, Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, and Togo’s Bawoupati Batassa, a youth representative, Tinubu will be addressing.

The discussion will be moderated by Damilola Ogunbiyi, Chief Executive Officer of Sustainable Energy for All and Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations.

Numerous ministers and delegations from all around the world attended the ministerial inauguration, one of several activities that happened yesterday at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre in Nairobi, Kenya.

Ruto was hosting and chairing the African Climate Change Summit for the first time.

In order for Nigeria to position itself in the carbon market, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, a former vice president and worldwide advisor for the worldwide Energy Alliance for People and Planet, declared that pollution and gas flaring must end.

Osinbajo, who presided over yesterday’s summit session on carbon markets, emphasized the need for Nigeria to successfully begin the transition to renewable energy sources and put an end to gas flaring right once.

He said that work has already begun to decommission the diesel generators in Nigeria’s big open markets.

In response to our correspondent’s inquiry regarding the environmental effects of the military’s ongoing burning of stolen oil vessels that it had seized and taken back, despite the Climate Change Act and Nigeria’s nationally determined contribution, Osinbajo emphasized the urgent need to end gas flaring.

He said, “One of the ways we can get there is by making our carbon market work. If it is commissioned, we can sell those credits. It is a matter of doing what works. If we can activate our carbon market, we can monetise it.”
