The President made the remarks in his message to rich nations at the COP26, a statement signed on Tuesday by presidential spokesman Garba Shehu said.

“We can also invest in nuclear. Though not renewable it is carbon neutral and capable of producing a baseload, constant electricity production on which sustained economic progress can be built,” Buhari said.

“Nigeria is among a handful of African countries exploring nuclear power, with a research reactor already operational.”
