Lagos - The Africa Clean Energy Summit (ACES), which was scheduled for Abuja on Tuesday, has been postponed reportedly as a result of safety concerns following the bomb blast that killed scores of people outside the capital city.
More than 70 were killed after a bomb went off at the busy commuter omnibus rank in Nyanya, raising fears of further terrorist attacks.
Organizers of the energy summit, while they could not clarify reasons for the postponement, confirmed the event would not proceed as initially planned.
"Due to some unforeseen situations; we regret to announce the postponement of the Africa Clean Energy Summit initially scheduled for April 22nd to 24th, 2014 in Abuja," Juddie Passion, Head of Secretariat, ACES 2014, stated.
"A new date will be communicated after due consultations with the Nigerian Government. All inconveniences are highly regretted."
ACES 2014 was positioned to be one of the world's foremost annual climate solution events, dedicated to advancing renewable energy, energy efficiency and clean technologies in the continent.
