Buhari Departs Abuja To Glasglow For COP26

President Buhari has departed Abuja to Glasglow to attend the 26th conference of Parties (COP26) in Scotland.

According to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, the President is scheduled to deliver his national statement at the High-Level segment for Heads of State and Government at the conference on Tuesday, November 2.

The conference, hosted by the United Kingdom in partnership with Italy, will bring parties together to help accelerate action towards the Paris Agreement as well as the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.

Given Nigeria’s leading role in taking climate action and as a signatory to the Paris Agreement, COP 26 will afford a unique opportunity for the Nigerian delegation to work with other parties to make progress on the main goals of the conference including securing global net-zero by mid-century and keeping 1.5C within reach; adapting to protect communities and natural habitats as well as mobilizing the much-needed finances to meet the set targets.
