Nigerian News Agency reports that the attendees would also look at the environmental crisis and its global challenges- as the topic occupies all five of the top slots in the WEF’s annual report on the greatest risks facing the world.

Meanwhile climate campaigner Greta Thunberg — who will be attending the Forum would demand that business and political leaders halt investments in fossil fuel exploration and extraction, end fossil fuel subsidies and divest from fossil fuels.

It would be recalled that Thunberg at a rally on Friday warned those in power: “You haven’t seen anything yet.”

Some economists told NAN that the theme for this year’s meeting “stakeholders for a cohesive and sustainable world” — reflects the number of chief executives who have pledged to start paying as much attention to employees, customers and the environment as to their shareholders.

Nigeria would be represented by some Ministers and top government functionaries.
