At the 2018 end-of-year party and awards presentation ceremony organised for its staff in Lagos, Imrane Barry, Managing Director of Total Nigeria Plc, said the company will invest heavily in renewable power sources as part of its major projects for 2019.
Barry explained that in 2018, the company’s exploits had been challenging but it recorded huge feats in several areas, one of which was its 30th solar-powered service station that opened in October 2018.
Speaking on the company’s agenda in the new year, Barry said “we are looking forward to a proper transition of government in 2019, this would impact the economy greatly as we are also working towards growth and sustainability. In specific, we are aligning with federal government plans to diversify into solar energy as we plan to expand our solar energy output to increase electricity capacity in Nigeria”.
He also added that “we are also working on building and acquiring new stations to avail us with more outlets where customers can have more access to our products around the country”.
Olubunmi Popoola- Mordi, the company’s General Manager of Human Resources, who spoke on the importance of entertaining and rewarding staff at the event, said “this is important for us because the success of a company is determined by the happiness of its staff. We are here today to celebrate ourselves, catch fun to the fullest and connect with ourselves much more than before. As you can see, the staff are motivated and ready to face the challenges of the new year”
