African oil-giant Nigeria is set to formally join the Paris climate change agreement in September, bringing the deal’s entry into force a step closer.

Environment minister Amina Mohammed set out the government’s timeline at a ministerial breakfast meeting on Sunday, national news site Today reported.

For the Paris Agreement to go live, 55 countries responsible for 55% of global greenhouse gas emissions need to ratify.

The largest economy in sub-Saharan Africa, Nigeria accounts for 0.57% of emissions, according to a UN inventory.
