President Buhari has launched a plan to phase out the usage of kerosene

President Muhammadu Buhari has announced a new plan under a revamped policy to phase out kerosene use in Nigeria by 2030.

Buhari said it is part of Nigeria’s commitment to a safer and healthier global climate, which he revealed during a virtual conference held by US President Joe Biden on the Major Economies Forum on Energy and Climate Change (MEF).

Channels Television reported that the President also listed the country’s updated Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) to include increase in the use of bus rapid transit as a means of transportation for the general public, 50 per cent reduction in the fraction of crop residues burnt by 2030 and implementation of forest programmes.

He disclosed that the NDC is a contribution to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, submitted to replace the interim contribution of May 27, 2021.

In 2012, the federal government commenced a new policy draft known as the National strategic policy for LPG in collaboration with stakeholders in the petroleum industry, to phase out kerosene and firewood usage in the country and adopt the cooking gas as an alternative, however, 10 years after, that policy is yet to crystallize.
