European countries are making plans to ramp up gas importation from Nigeria to the tune of 22 million tons per year, providing an opportunity for Africa’s most populous nation to earn revenues.

A document obtained by The PUNCH from the Global Gas Monitor entitled, ‘Europe Scrambles for African Gas’, published by DW on Friday, said Africa was the next gas hub for European countries.

...Director of Power Shift Africa, a think tank based in Nairobi, Mohamed Adow, told journalists at the COP27 conference in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, that Europe was trying to make Africa its ‘gas station’ but was not providing enough money for renewable energy.
