Today the Buhari Administration and the UNDP will be announcing a job training fellowship for Nigerian graduates. The Presidency will later this month formally launch the scheme that will annually engage scores of thousands Nigerians fresh from universities & co- JUBILEE FELLOWS
I join the President and CIC of the Nigerian Armed Forces to commiserate with families, friends and colleagues of these gallant officers and men who died in the crash. I pray that God grants them the fortitude to bear the loss. May the memories of the departed remain ever blessed
We honour the service of the Army Chief and all those involved in this unfortunate accident even as we continue to demonstrate our profound appreciation to all in our military services and in harm's way. The gallantry of our heroes will always be remembered.
I would once again like to thank the organizers, the Coalition of Intercessors, the Christian Association of Nigeria, and the father of the Nigerian Prayers Movement, General Yakubu Gowan, for this invitation and unwavering commitment and dedication to keeping Nigeria one.
The word of God defies logic or human thinking. His methods of revealing things depends on who it is, and also comes in many forms. I believe a new Nigeria has already been birthed, however, it is covered by a cloud, one that God will lift in due time, bringing us to a new nation
Just like other parts of the scripture, we see that the children of God are central to the birth and rebirths of nations. In this story, people turned to God as opposed to man-made solutions. With this, the land was healed, the people prospered and peace and joy prevailed.

This is such an important thread. It states clearly Nigeria's position on energy transition, our commitment to zero emissions by 2050 while also pointing out the mismatch in energy investment in Africa and our desire to end energy poverty by 2030.
We keenly look forward to working with UN in highlighting opportunities present in the clean energy sector, and also to draw the attention of developed countries, the private sector and development agencies to these opportunities.
On our own part, we have also developed the Solar Naija Programme under the Economic Sustainability Plan, which aims to connect 25 million people to power by 2023. As we believe in the power of off-grid renewables to close the energy gap in Nigeria and Africa.
We look to developed countries, the private sector, and development agencies to recognise the potential that a just and clean energy transition can bring to the development of our continent, and other developing regions.
While Nigeria remains committed to a net-zero emission future, we must all on a global scale, link the energy access part of the transition to the emission reduction aspect. To reach net-zero by 2050, we must first end energy poverty by 2030.
