It is therefore not surprising that the financial sector had to go through the process of mergers and acquisition mandated by the Central Bank of Nigeria as one of the corrective measures.

Climate change remains a major challenge as increases in emissions of associated carbon dioxide (CO2) (a key greenhouse gas) are the main cause of global warming. Most future growth from greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is expected to come from developing countries because of their rapid economic development and expansion of energy-intensive industries. Hence, one of the most viable technologies available to mitigate these GHG emissions from large scale fossil fuel usage is CO2 capture and storage (CCS). CCS can be referred to as an approach to mitigating climate change via the process of capturing CO2 emissions from large point sources such as power plants, compressing it into a dense fluid, transporting it (usually by pipeline) and storing it securely in geological formations, on land or under the seabed.
