Extant Energy Laws And Just Transition In Nigeria

By Kelvin Alohan

As plans to transition to renewable energy gains momentum in Nigeria, Benneth Joseph Ebikon Esq., in this final edition of Just Energy Transition (JET) half hour on Royal 95.5FM, Yenagoa, took listeners through the existing extant laws in Nigeria and their applicability in the energy sector.

The legal practitioner spoke about the provisions of the law, and which would require some amendments in order for smooth just energy transitioning to be achieved in Nigeria as well as how community members can participate in both the legal and transitioning process.

The JET half hour was implemented by Youth and Environmental Advocacy Centre (YEAC) in Bayelsa State in partnership with Spaces for Change and support from Africa Centre for Energy Policy (ACEP), as part of a project titled From Exclusion to Inclusion in National Just Transition Plans’, under the auspices of the Extractive Industry and Climate Change Governance Project.

The radio program featured a total of 12 episodes on Royal FM with the aim of discussing and creating awareness about Nigeria’s energy transition plans and helping communities understand what Just Energy Transition means, what policies should drive it; the new jobs and renewable energy alternatives that should be in place, how it can affect them and what role they can play in the implementation of the national energy transition plans.


Will private management of Nigeria's refineries be a success story?
