Group Rally Support For FG’s Net-Zero Project
The Nigeria Women for Gas and Green Initiative has flagged off its Clean and Green Nigeria campaign in Abuja with a commitment to make at least 30 percent significant impact in President Muhammadu Buhari’s 2060 Net-zero commitment and the FGN’s carbon emission reduction agenda.
The Clean and Green Nigeria Campaign said they are targeting a 30 percent Dome-gas penetration in the over 48 million households in Nigeria with her Gas-to-Home clean cooking strategy by the year 2025.
Addressing the gathering Chairperson of the Nigeria Women for Gas and Green Initiative, Hajiya Maryam Salihu Ibrahim, said the NGO and its projects are designed to support government’s policies on climate change like tree planting, domestic gas adoption/utilization as a means of reducing pollution and making the environment safe for all.
She said, “We resolve to bequeath a healthy earth and habitable environment to future generations with the mandate to reduce carbon emission by 30 percent by 2030 through our Clean and Green Nigeria campaign project as Nigeria Women’s National emission Reduction Support Strategy which is launched today.”
In his remarks, Minister of State Petroleum Resources, Timipre Sylva represented by the Senior Technical Assistant to the minister, Brenda Ataga, commended the resolve of the Nigerian women under the Initiative to partner with the government in the implementation of the National Gas Expansion Programme and declared the Ministry’s endorsement and commitment to the Gas-to-Home project.
On her part, the Minister of State for the environment, Sharon Ikeazor represented by the Director general of the National Great Green Wall Agency, Dr. Bukar Hassan, acknowledged the ministry’s endorsement and support to the activities of the Nigeria women for Gas and Green Initiative especially with its tree planting campaign and projects.
In his remark, Project Coordinator of the Clean and Green Nigeria Campaign, Mr. Valentine Igoniwari noted that the Clean and Green Nigerian campaign is the result of a synergy between Private Sector’s Corporate Social responsibility agenda and the Nigerian Women to ensure such inclusiveness that will fast track women awareness, development and actions as stakeholders and active partners in the implementation of key economic programs in Nigeria with special focus on carbon emission reduction.
Mr. Igonwari added that the woman as the natural bridge to life on earth, sets the development agenda and moral tone of man, family and the society.
Her sensitive duty of care for everyone and the environment glows visibly in her nature and style of naturally transmitting values which interprets our quality of life and well being.
“So in this climate action call, this battle to save our earth, she is pivotal for ‘development’ revolves around her and is sustained by her. So the society should pay detailed attention to the woman.
NW4GGi, an umbrella of women for green revolution inspires the Nigerian Women to take the first step in the battle to save our earth, by greening our environment which cooperates with nature. That brought about the concept of #1woman,1tree and #1 child,1 tree project to align with and fast track the global climate actions.”
