The Chief Executive Officer of Axxela Limited, Bolaji Osunsanya has tasked stakeholders in the nation’s gas sector to find lasting solutions to the challenges besetting the industry.
He gave the challenge Axxela’s in his keynote address titled “Actualising Gas Infrastructure Development; Untangling the Bottlenecks”, delivered at the recent Nigerian Gas Association conference and exhibition in Abuja.
He said: “The major issues that have hitherto affected the sustainable development and growth of the infrastructure needed for the domestic gas sector can be aggregated into market readiness, supply assurance, policy and regulation, suitability of financing, and execution discipline.”
“The challenges are significant and might seem daunting; nevertheless, given the imperatives of the gas policy and the significance of gas infrastructure development to the achievement of its objectives, we must confront the challenges head on.”
“The time to act is now and these solutions must be locally-owned and driven. I trust that all stakeholders within the gas sector will endeavour to collaborate effectively towards ensuring the accelerated development of gas infrastructure across the region.”
