Germany working on hydrogen partnership with West Africa; importing green hydrogen
16 February 2020
German Federal Research Minister Anja Karliczek and her Nigerian counterpart and chairman of the Council of Ministers of the Competence Center for Climate Change and Adapted Land Use, Yahouza Sadissou, have agreed on a package of measures to expand the strategic partnership between Germany and West Africa, with a focus on hydrogen.
Africa is a continent of opportunities. Green hydrogen as the oil of tomorrow is one of the greatest opportunities. I am therefore very pleased that we have laid the foundation stone for a hydrogen partnership. It holds great opportunities for everyone involved: for West Africa, for Europe and for Germany as a country of innovation.—Minister Karliczek
Karliczek said that an atlas of green hydrogen potential in West Africa will be published by the end of the year.
"importing green hydrogen" doesn't appear anywhere in the article you linked. Instead just the exceedingly vague "We have launched a potential atlas on green hydrogen in West Africa."
Is GCC a credible web site any more? Doesn't feel like it...

Does the cost of H2 transport from Africa make financial sense compared to local renewables?
