Special Presidential Envoy on Climate Action (SPEC) and presidential spokesperson, Ajuri Ngelale has pledged federal government’s support for companies investing in clean, environmentally friendly cooking stoves in the country.

Ngelale, who gave this assurance in an update note on his activities on Tuesday evening also received the Brazilian Head of Embassy, Joao Soares, at the State House, Abuja, said they both discussed areas of collaboration between both countries to advance climate justice and ensure new economic opportunity for their fast-growing populations.

He said: “Sequel to an initial conversation with BURN Manufacturing a few weeks ago, the Global CEO, Mr. Peter Scott visited me on Tuesday and detailed plans to construct a full end-to-end cooking stove manufacturing facility in Ogun State as an upgrade to their assemble-only plant in Kano State. As clean cooking becomes more of a national focus, as not only a wealth-creating opportunity, but also as a central theatre of activity in the just transition, companies will be supported with clean-finance incentives to empower our people to create sustainable solutions for tomorrow.

“Earlier in the day, I was pleased to welcome the Brazilian Head of Embassy, H.E. Joao Soares, to the State House, as we exchanged views on present and future opportunities in the climate action and green industrial spheres. As Africa’s and South America’s most populous nations, the two countries stand as critically important allies in the global south, and will need to deepen industrial and other forms of collaboration to advance climate justice and ensure new economic opportunity for our fast-growing populations.”
