Energy: Sylva Assures of Beneficial Energy Transition for Africa

by Kunle Awosiyan

Minister of State Petroleum Resources Chief Timipre Sylva said Nigeria will remain committed to driving the direction of the narrative for the African energy transition programme.

The Minister made this known at the just concluded Cerraweek, in Houston, United States of America.

This declaration is coming on the heels of a collective decision by African petroleum and energy ministers to present a common voice at COP 27, in Egypt, in November, for Africa to be allowed to continue to exploit its hydrocarbon deposits for the development of the continent.

Sylva, and Egyptian Energy Minister Terek el Molla have been the main voices in articulating a muti-track approach to the energy transition programme for Africa.

Sylva and El Molla led other African ministers to meeting where they resolved to project a common front in the energy transition timetable for Africa.

Both leaders are of the views that for the energy transition programme to be meaningful, Africa must be factored into the global energy transition programme in such a way that takes care of the peculiar African situations.
