Climate Change: American Billionaire, Jeff Bezos, Hails President Buhari In Glasgow

American billionaire and founder of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, on Monday, November 1, in Glasgow, Scotland, commended President Muhammadu Buhari’s leadership role in restoring degraded lands in the country, describing the commitment to restore 4 million hectares as exemplary.

A statement from the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said Bezos joined President Buhari, French President Emmanuel Macron, Prince Charles and the Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Ghazouani at a COP 26 side event entitled “Accelerating land restoration in Africa, the case of the Great Green Wall (GGW) initiative.”.

Garba stated that Bezos while heaping praises on the Nigerian leader at the event co-hosted by the French President, his Mauritanian counterpart and the Prince of Wales, said

‘‘We are fortunate to have President Buhari of Nigeria with us today. Nigeria plays a critical role in the restoration movement and has pledged to restore 4 million hectares of degraded lands.
‘This kind of ambition coming from Africa’s largest economy underscores just how vital this issue is.’’

The Bezos Earth Fund has a 10 billion dollar fund to allocate money to projects fighting climate change.

Nigeria is due to assume the leadership of the Conference of Heads of State and the Government of the Pan African Agency of the Great Green Wall.
