We are Working Hard to Stabilise the Deteriorating Energy Situation across West Africa – President Buhari



President Buhari Receives Togo President3President Muhammadu Buhari has that his administration is working hard to stabilise the deteriorating energy situation across the West African sub-region.

Buhari stated this while addressing a joint news conference with the visiting Togolese President Faure Gnassingbe, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Tuesday.

He praised Dangote Group for the efforts it is making towards building gas pipelines to improve and stabilise power supply in Nigeria and beyond.

“We are also building pipelines, but it’s not as formidable as what Dangote (Group) is doing. We are improving on it.

We also have the Nigeria Liquefied and Natural Gas project that is helping to liquefy gas with modern technology and modern technology is making it flexible.

If you will recall, I mentioned to the President of Benin that we have power problem. Benin Republic has power problem because they depend on us and we are working very hard to stabilise the situation.

The resources are available, the technology is available, we are trying to stabilise the situation. If ‎we improve power it means our productivity can be competitive and God willing, we are going to achieve our objectives,” he said.

Earlier, President Gnassingbe disclosed that he was in Nigeria to inspect the investment of Dangote Groups in gas, power and fertilizer projects, sited in Lagos state. He was received by the Lagos State governor, Akinwunmi Ambode.

“I’m impressed by the investment of Dangote Group because we have been talking of socio-economic integration and promoting trade among African countries.

If you want to promote trade, you must have investors that are very competitive and can contribute to reducing import from non-African countries.

I was told the gas pipeline that will be built will be buried under the sea‎.

It means if you want to promote blue economy, our ocean needs to be very safe,” he said.

He, therefore, stressed the need for security along the coastal line to safeguard pipelines that would be laid.

Gnassingbe invited President Muhammadu Buhari to Togo to attend the maritime summit slated for October 15.
