Nigeria's carbon dilemma is how to walk the tight rope of fossil-led growth while promoting net zero emission stipulated in the NDC. But this is a tough ask since crude oil is also the cash cow. With drum beats of weaning the global energy economy drawing near, it is no longer a far off chance as it now inevitable the world is exiting fossil fuel. The world is headed towards carbon neutral growth with the proliferation of EVs. Hence oil producing countries without plans for a future without oil are headed for hard times in the years to come. Finding alternatives to fossil fuels is the growing trend. Unfortunately, oil is still the golden goose so there must be trade off between fossil fuel led growth and low carbon development.
