He affirmed that that energy transition should be consistent with the strategic interest of each country and region. This he said was accentuated by how quickly key European countries opened the coal mines in the wake of the threats to energy supplies following the Russian-Ukraine war. “Each country is in a different phase of the energy transition, and each country must therefore prioritize to reflect strategic national and regional interests”, he added.
The Nigeria International Energy Summit is the largest gathering of oil and gas industry players as well as policy makers in the West African Region. This year’s event featured high level participation from various African countries, including Algeria, Benin Republic, Libya, Egypt, Ghana, Equitoria Guinea, Republic of the Congo as well as other key global industry organization such as OPEC and others.
