To develop the Nigerian gas sector, the Federal Government had declared ‘A decade of Gas’ earlier this year.
This initiative aims to drive development and investment in the gas sector to maximise gas resources for economic development.
” Our major objective for the gas sector is to transform Nigeria into an industrialized nation with gas playing a major role, and we demonstrated this through enhanced accelerated gas revolution,” President Muhammadu Buhari stated.
