Embrace Clean Energy to Tackle Climate Change, FG Urges Nigerians 

The Presidential Compressed Natural Gas Initiative (P-CNGi) is encouraging Nigerians to adopt clean energy as a solution to address climate change, according to Taiwo Fashipe, the Head of Media for P-CNGi.

Fashipe made this statement during a press conference in Abuja held over the weekend, which was organized by Climate Action Africa in preparation for the Climate Action Africa Forum (CAAF24).

During the conference, Fashipe mentioned the government’s plan to increase the number of CNG conversion centers from 12 to 45 by May of this year, aiming to promote the use of cleaner energy sources.

“We currently have 21 centers across the country, and we are looking to increase the centers to 45 by May 29th.

“The P-CNGi recognizes the critical role of cleaner energy solutions such as CNG in combating climate change and promoting sustainability. Our partnership with the Climate Action Africa Forum reaffirms our dedication to driving climate-smart initiatives.

“We remain steadfast in supporting endeavors like CAAF24 that advocate for a greener and more resilient future for Africa.”

Executive Director and Co-founder of Climate Action Africa, Grace Mbah, called for tech-driven solutions and innovations “in the fields of emissions reduction, transportation, agriculture, energy, building, and construction to be applied and participated in the deal room.”

She added: “It is no secret that the world stands at a critical juncture, where decisive action is imperative to mitigate the adverse impacts of climate change. Against this backdrop, CAAF24 is a pivotal platform for key stakeholders to engage in meaningful discourse and forge collaborative pathways towards a greener and more sustainable future.”
