NJ Ayuk has been an important part of the overall initiative to make Africa an energy-independent continent. In addition to education and entrepreneurship, Ayuk stresses how key gas and oil production are for the area’s independence.
“Gas and oil are vital pieces of the puzzle when it comes to Africa gaining its independence, growing its economy, transitioning to renewable resources, and thriving as a whole. We should abide by our own schedule, not by the timelines of already prosperous countries,” he says.
If Africa is able to begin harvesting its own fossil fuel reserves, while simultaneously investing in clean energy initiatives, the continent may be able to cut ties with wealthy nations who have monopolized the international energy sector. “Our time at the world energy table is now,” NJ says. He continues, “We Africans can prove that our continent can no longer be overlooked. We will make a difference.”
NJ’s powerful words and dedication to his country’s independent prosperity stands out among his peers, earning him the title of a Most Reputable African by Reputation Poll International.
