Gambia learning from Ghana’s energy sector

Fafa Sanyang, Gambia’s Minister of Petroleum and Energy has paid a visit to Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, Ghana’s Minister for Energy, today at his office.

He was accompanied by the senior management staff of his ministry as well as heads of some of their key agencies in the petroleum downstream sector.

For the past few days, the team has been in the country to understudy Ghana’s methods of regulating the downstream industry, particularly with respect to lessons from the National Petroleum Agency (NPA).

The Minister reported that team has been very impressed with the systems Ghana has put in place to improve the quality of services customers receive and are returning to Gambia with a lot of notes.

”I was happy to hear their study tour was beneficial and assured them my doors are always open, should they require any other assistance.

”I took the opportunity to also remind the delegation of the long-standing relationship between Ghana and Gambia especially in the area of education,” he said.

“I advised the team to begin the process of joining the Africa Petroleum Producers Organization (APPO) to enable Africa to speak with one voice on petroleum-related issues in the global space. I thanked the team once again for their visit and wished them well,” he said.
