The Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki has said that Nigeria should move against the entrenched interest militating against her successful pivot into renewable energy.
Speaking recently at the inaugural green economy lecture series organised by the Sustainable Energy Practitioners of Nigeria (SEPAN) in Abuja, Saraki said that irrespective of these existing interests, a cleverly pursued consultative process could help begin to change the situation, albeit it could take long.
He noted that Nigeria having signed and recently ratified the agreements in the Paris Conference of Parties (COP), now puts on the laps of the National Assembly, the responsibility of mainstreaming the COP provisions into her national economy through legislative actions. According to him, this would be undertaken by the National Assembly with a lot of candour and sense of responsibilities.
