The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, AAC, Omoyele Sowore, for the 2023 general elections has noted that Nigeria needs to focus on renewable energy to prepare for the future.

According to Sowore, as gathered by SaharaReporters, “Lagos has enough waste to generate electricity for the South-West”.

“There are other wastes out there unaccounted for that can be used,” he added.

He also noted that reliance on oil and gas is not sustainable as most economies are gradually moving away from oil, adding that electric cars and planes are not being made.

Sowore hinted that too much exploitation of gas will have environmental implications for Nigeria.

Sowore indicated that focusing on renewable energy sources like sunlight, water and biomass is the best option to have a Nigeria without oil.

Speaking on education, the AAC candidate described education as integral to the development of the country, adding that it can also be effective in curbing insecurity.

“Education is very important to me,” he said.

“We need education and I believe education can solve crimes, the right education because some people who are also involved in crime are educated. A lot of them, especially those in government, serious education, serious criminals, education don’t automatically wipe out crimes but education can help uplift people and can create citizens that can bail their country out of poverty.”
