The Special Presidential Envoy on Climate Action SPEC, Ajuri Ngelale on Monday received the Head of Africa, Word Economic Forum(WEF), Mr. Chido Muyati, and Africa’s Regional Agenda Lead, Ms. Abir Ibrahim to
deliberate on Nigeria’s value chain localization initiative.

The meeting which was held at the Presidential Villa, Abuja , also extensively discussed possible ways in which Nigeria can actively create linkages between the Organized Private Sector in developed markets and critical public-private stakeholders in advancing new wealth-creating industries supported by localized supply chains.

Ngelale in a brief made available to State House correspondents, said “On Monday morning, I was thrilled to welcome the World Economic Forum’s Head of Africa, Mr. Chido Munyati, and Africa’s Regional Agenda Lead, Ms. Abir Ibrahim, for an extensive deliberation on Nigeria’s value chain localization initiative and how we can actively create linkages between the Organized Private Sector in developed markets and critical Nigerian public-private stakeholders in advancing new wealth-creating industries supported by localized supply chains. Very exciting prospects here. We will follow up on the agenda items discussed soon”.

Similarly on Monday afternoon, the SPEC welcomed the Country Director of ProVeg International, Mr. Hakeem Jimo explored ideas on how to generate tangible value from reviewing food systems that globally contribute up to 25% of all greenhouse gas emissions at a time when nearly 50% of all meat consumed in Nigeria is imported.

The Presidential Envoy who affirmed that sustainable agricultural practices and food system alignments could minimize forest destruction and biodiversity loss, acknowledged that it was a major area of opportunity as the nation sought to create a new industrial ecosystem for biomass in close collaboration with technical partners and investors.

The SPEC and the Executive Vice-Chairman, National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI), Mr. Khalil Halilu, also had the opportunity to consider approaches to strengthen the nation’s renewable energy drive.

“Later on Monday evening, I met with NASENI EVC/CEO, Mr. Khalil Halilu, and we aligned approaches in an effort to bolster Nigeria’s new drive to localize renewable energy technology value chains.

“Our collaborative approach to achieving national objectives for the benefit of all Nigerians is in conformity with H.E. President Bola Tinubu’s team-centered approach to problem-solving and service delivery. Nigerians have so much to look forward to”, he said
