According to him, Kachikwu had confirmed his participation, adding that he would address experts on prospects of investing in those critical sectors.

Olawale said operators at the conference, tagged “Sub-Sahara Africa Oil, Gas and Energy Summit (SSAOGES 2018)”, would find direction among governments in Africa to support deployment of key infrastructure to harness its abundant energy resources.

He said: “With the increasing population growth becoming increase in demand for energy, Africa as a continent, though with enough energy reserves to serve its teeming population, does not have the infrastructure to produce enough energy to meet the continent’s need.
