Nigeria’s Environment Minister, Amina J. Mohammed, recently embarked on a working Visit to Morocco on the invitation of Moroccan government.
The visit, it was gathered, is geared towards fostering mutual relationship between the Nigeria and Government of Morocco in the area of the environment and sustainable development, in preparation for COP22, which will hold in November in Marrakesh.
The visit offered both nations the opportunity to explore bilateral cooperation on environmental and sustainable development issues. Hosted by her Moroccan counterpart, Hakima El Haite, Mrs Mohammed also visited the NOOR Power Plant. Also called the Ouarzazate Solar Power Station, it is a solar power complex located in the Souss-Massa-Drâa area in Morocco, 10 km from Ouarzazate town, in Ghessat rural council area.
