If they ever succeed with coal power plants, I hope coal vandals don't spring up one day.

Please the world is changing so fast so Mrs finance minister follow the trend...
Science has a standard for everything.
To checkmate global warming and ozone depletion there are many technology that has fade out with time to give room for cleaner fuel to power our infrastructures in order to save the earth ozone layer and checkmate global warming.
Sometimes I ask who is advising the woman she looks young but acts so old in the brain. How can in this century you want to use coal to power your country when there are other better way of doing it using solar and wind even ordinary water too.
This woman won't stop disgracing herself and Nigeria at large. So for your mind Na Westerners they hold you .. smh this woman is a joke as one would say apc has graduated the blame game to a whole new level.

Coal is cheap and efficient for the cost. Most modern smoke stacks only allow CO2 and water vapor out with trace elements of other pollutants. China does it and lots of nations still run most of their energy on it. When country get richer they can opt more for alternative energies that less efficient per kilowatt.
Besides these alternative energies aren't always producing. Sun not always shining, clowds and batter storage capacity. Hydro great but alot energy has to be kicked back to Niger and Benin republic so they don't block dams. Wind not always blowing.
Coal and Gas would be best options for us. Others renewables can be used aswell. I'm energy adnostic so I don't care too much.

They arent cheaper and less efficient. Most coal power station don't release much besides CO2 water and trace pollutants. The as you know hydro power we produce is kicked back to Niger and Benin republic, then when water levels go down after rainy season overall production declines. The rest simply aren't as profitable. Yes countries still do use coal plants check China building more and most of world's energy procedure via coal and gas.

You, my friend, are so ignorant.
Follow this link to see that about 40% of world energy is fuelled by coal including the US:
Even though stronger regulations apply in the US and EU they are still increasing/maintaining capacity while exploring renewables. China is still building at least 2 new coal power plants a week:
The world is also moving towards electric cars, do you have one? Even if you do how many have u seen on Nigerian roads?
Stay there dey follow Kemi wey no know u dey quarrel.

do you think if these western countries had an abundance of coal and oil, and if same was their prime source of energy, that they would be so enthuastic about going green.
We need energy, lots of it.

Son of Hatred, a little research would have informed your medulla oblongata that the world still runs majorly on coal.
Western world are just dubious, by always seeking every means to stop other countries from developing except you are as mad as China or recalcitrant as Russia. They wanted the world to reduce pollution by limiting the CO2 generation but they are not ready to pay other countries for the same Ozone layer they depleted and other countries are saying to hell with the Treaty if you are not ready to pay because all countries are aspiring to develop too.
See beyond your hatred and envy.

This Yoruba woman and her stupid talks.
Western powers can't stop Nigeria from using coal.
What they can only do is to refused to help Nigerians build a Coal powered electricity plant.
But if Nigeria can build it, the Western Nations can't do jack about it.
Therefore she should stop blaming Western Nations for Nigerians technological backwardness.
A useless nation who refused to tap into Biafra's technological advancements after the war because of fear that the Igbos will use that opportunity to develop technologies that will help them to secede.

For you people I quoted, stop defending this woman out of ethnic sentiment
Nigeria can generate electricity from the following sources
Biogas(Gas from animal and human wastes)
Biofuel( Fuel from green grasses)
Plastic Fuel ( Fuel from plastic wastes)
Coal is not a clean source of energy though it is good when converted to industrial chemicals
if only Nigeria will acknowledge the technological prowess of the Igbo nation and support them to develop electricity technologies just the way Ojukwu supported them in the last war

I keep saying it. Africa can never advance until we cut all ties with the white man.
The white is to blame for all Africa problems.
Blame game it may be, but it is a simple truth.
Kemi is one of my top 2 favourite ministers. She is courageous to say truth even if you means being critical of the Western countries. This is not the first time she made such comments.
PMB made a great decision in appointing her to the Finance ministry.

I marvel at the level of hypocrisy of the APC government and its ministers, wen it suit them , they quote the same western power to "hail the integrity of their dullardiho", small time like this, they start to attack the same western power
2019 is far my bro ....

Something tells me that white man has many agents operating on this forum whose job it is to jump down the throat of anybody that criticises the white man.

This woman is not so smart. Government of western countries are getting rid of coal plant in their own countries because of the release of green house gases. Of course they wont support you.
Infact heavy carbon tax are being levied on corporations still running on coal fired plants. Provincial goverments and state government have been given deadline dates to shutdown coal plants in their jurisdictions.
I doubt if she even knows that Nigeria signed a treaty with over 150 other nations at the last Paris climate agreementl less than 6months or so ago.

I said this when this man was signing what he didn't know. He just signed that document without understanding it. And the minister of the environment was just smiling sheepishly as he shot himself in the foot.

Blue3k:Do you mean trap co2 and let out water and trace pollutants?
If that is what you meant, those techology are expensive. They dont come cheap. The carbon capture recently constructed by a power utility corporation in Canada for a 120MW plant cost just over 1billion dollars. Can Nigeria afford that?
make them look for other means of power generation as no western country would support this quest.
|Re: Western Powers Blocking Nigeria’s Power Solution – Adeosun by SuperS1Panther: 6:05am On Oct 06, 2016|
Biafrau.d technological advancement!!!! Or what did you just say?
How has the imaginary "technological advancement" developed Igboland? Why did Nigeria succeeded in pummelling you to submission?
How many MW is being generated worldwide from biogas Sun and Wind? Your water bodies are receding and you are here talking of hydro, while your ipod militants an Scavengers are bombing the gas pipeline.
Thank God FG is partnering with the Russian Coy to establish Nuclear Power Plant. Lol.
