The Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, on Wednesday 5th October, 2016 in Washington, U.S.A alleged during a discussion on the importance of addressing infrastructure gaps in developing countries at the World Bank, International Monetary Fund general meeting, that western powers are a stumbling block to Nigeria’s effort to improve its electricity output through the use of coal.
She said: “we are being blocked from doing so, because it is not green. This is not fair because they have an entire western industrialization that was built on coal-fired energy. They suggest that we use solar and wind, which is the more expensive. So yes, Africa must invest in its infrastructure, but we must also make sure that the playing field is level”.
These allegation came in just after over 70 UN member countries excluding Nigeria ratified the  Climate Treaty tagged “The Paris Agreement”. The agreement which will be enforced from November 4th, 2016, seeks to limit global temperature rise to no more than 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit). Consequently, UN member countries are to respond by by drafting national plans to these effect. It remains to see the steps Nigeria will take regarding this dilemma between economic growth and climate preservation.
