The African Energy Chamber believes that the energy sector and the oil and gas sector in particular will continue to be key drivers of economic development on the African continent and a force for good. Robert Onyejekwe is a very accomplished and result-driven professional who understands the most pressing issues the oil and gas sector is facing today, from origination to financing and from organic growth to expansion via mergers and acquisitions.
Local content and African participation have to be an integral part of the ongoing transition in the sector, especially as energy transition plays an increasingly important role globally. The wellbeing of African economies and communities needs to take centre stage, as oil and gas companies revaluate their activities in Africa. Energy transition in New York cannot be the same as energy transition in Lagos.
Our advisory board has a responsibility to advocate for regulations, policies that promote growth and investment in Africa’s entire sector, with a focus on eradicating energy poverty by 2035. This will help drive a lot of African economies, create the needed jobs and push Africa to remain competitive in the global economy.
Our committee members, working with various African governments and national energy companies to communicate regularly about the policies which are working, and those which could be made to work better will only benefit African families and businesses.
