Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo says the use of gas as a transition fuel will help in stemming deforestation in the country and advance broader development goals, adding that Nigeria has one of the largest gas reserves in the world.

Osinbajo who stated this on Tuesday night when he received the United State US Special Presidential Envoy on Climate Change, John Kerry accompanied by the American Ambassador to Nigeria, Mary Beth Leonard, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, believes other developing countries will also benefit from the adoption of gas as a transition fuel.

The Vice President, at the meeting with Kerry and the US delegation, highlighted the need for Nigeria to continue the exploration and use of gas as a way of arresting deforestation, transiting away from dirtier fuels like diesel, kerosene, and petrol, while at the same time ensuring that the country has the necessary energy baseload for industrialization.

While acknowledging that Nigeria ought to benefit from its gas reserves, Kerry urged an even more rapid adoption of renewables, especially electric vehicles which are certainly the next wave in auto manufacturing, adding that he anticipates Nigeria presenting an inspiring position, which would attract all necessary global support at the upcoming COP 27 in Egypt later in the year.
