The visit was a follow-up on the just concluded second edition of the Domestic Gas and Gas Infrastructure Summit (DGGIS2023) with the theme, “Building a Sustainable, Resilient Gas and Renewable Energy Sector in Nigeria and Beyond” held at the Abuja Trade and Convention Centre of ACCI.

Mr Chinedu lauded the support of Sen. Jarigbe while calling on him to use his good office to push for the implementation of the recommendations made at the conference adding that the support of government is needed to build a solid gas sector to the benefit of all.

“A draft of the MoU will be sent to you for review where we can work in partnership with your committee with the ACCI Energy Tarde. This is where we can discuss policies and issues concerning the development of Gas and see the ways the private sector can actually support the committee and further the enhancement of gas utilization in Nigeria. We will send the review the draft and formally pay a visit to endorse the MoU for possible partnership between the two bodies.”
