Vice President Kashim Shettima has said Nigeria is facing challenges but there is a way where there is a will as President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a man imbued with passion, intellect and capacity to lead the nation on the path of prosperity and progress.
He stated this on Monday when he received Denmark’s Minister for Development Cooperation and Global Climate Policy, Mr Dan Jorgensen, on a courtesy visit to the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
“Oil will still be relevant because of its other derivatives for the next decades but as the primary driver of the economy, the role of oil will diminish in the coming years. This is why it is a priority for us to think out of the box to find alternatives. This is why we are looking for investments in digital technology, clean energy and other sectors. We have a lot of opportunities for partnership and collaboration.”
The vice president said Nigeria’s huge potential in digital technology, the outsourcing industry and the clean energy sector would continue to incentivise investments in its energy transition plan and agenda to diversify the economy.
Earlier, the Danish Minister for Development Cooperation and Global Climate Policy, Jorgensen, expressed his admiration for Nigeria’s leadership and commitment to climate sustainability.
