The Nigerian Government is to raise N20bn ($65.6 million) by March this year to help fund renewable energy projects.
The Minister of Environment, Amina Mohammed, says government hopes to achieve this with the call being made on Nigerians to support the issuance of Green Bond.
Mohammed said the bond would be the first sovereign Green Bond in an emerging market that will add value to external resources in support of renewable energy.
Government has since commenced the deployment of solar power home systems in villages not connected to the national electricity grid.
