Nigeria Willing to Partner with Morocco in Renewable Energies- Nigerian Paper
“Nigeria is pursuing international partnership with Morocco to create collaborative platform for increased deployment of solar energy technologies to enhance security and sustainable development,” said the Nigerian paper.
Today quotes Nigeria’s environment minister, Amina Mohammed as saying that her country is willing to encourage the promotion of renewable energy solutions.
The partnership with Morocco which hosts the world’s largest solar plant, will help Nigeria promote “investment in solar power projects in several rural villages to improve education, water supply, health, agriculture, commerce, security and all these would offer opportunities to women.”
Renewable energies will thus be a major cooperation field between the two countries, which have turned a new page of win-win cooperation marked by largescale projects including the continental gas pipeline that will connect the two countries through west Africa and the fertilizers production plant, to be carried out in Nigeria in cooperation with Morocco’s phosphates company, the OCP.
