NJ Ayuk in Billions at Play Explains How Energy Underpins the African Dream

 

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA - Media
OutReach - 9
October 2019 - NJ Ayuk's
latest book, Billions at Play The Future of African Energy
and Doing Deals
launches October 22, 2019 and is
already an Amazon #1 Best-Seller in two categories: Oil and Energy, and African
Politics.

 

African economies are
undergoing a transformative period. The energy sector, in particular, holds
great potential to revitalize African economies and empower the growth and
development. This, is a subject NJ Ayuk dives into in great detail in his
sophomore book, Billions at Play: The Future of African Energy and Doing
Deals.

 

Now available for
pre-order on Amazon, Billions at Play tells us how energy can work
better for Africans.

 

With a foreword by
OPEC Secretary General Mohammad Sanusi Barkindo, Billions at Play sets
out to answer the questions: How did Africa get here and what comes next? How
do African countries and societies get the most value from their resources?
What exactly can African leaders do to put their countries on a sustainable,
profitable path? And how can all parties win in Africa's energy deals of the
coming decades?

 

In a straightforward
approach, the Executive Chairman of the African Energy Chamber outlines the
fortunes and misfortunes in Africa's petroleum industry and presents to us that
Africa can learn from itself to build competitive economies. In particular, he
proposes that:

"If African
governments, businesses, and organizations manage Africa's oil and gas revenues
wisely, we can make meaningful changes across the continent."

 

Using his experience
and knowledge of the global energy sector, Ayuk challenges key players to be
more active in developing their resources and local content skills, and
encourages decision-makers to put Africa's people at the center of economic
growth plans.

 

Making the case for
the petroleum industry having the power to support and transform emerging
economies, he unpacks key issues including what and how Africa can learn from
itself, the role of natural gas in Africa's energy future, effective and
sustainable investment strategies, strategic oil and gas revenue management
and, the role of women in the African petroleum sector.

 

The latter he insists
is vital in the success of Africa's oil and gas sector.

 

He asserts that the
low number of women represented in the global energy sector is an opportunity
missed. "I believe this is unacceptable, short-sighted, and, frankly a real
stumbling block to African countries that want to realize the full
socio-economic benefits that a thriving oil and gas industry can provide."

 

Ayuk says that, "Africans
are more than capable of making our continent successful." However, global
participation in the African energy landscape can produce greater benefits.
Speaking on U.S.-Africa relations specifically, he stresses that Africa needs
companies that are willing to share knowledge, technology and best practices,
and businesses that are willing to form positive relationships in areas where
they work.

 

In his foreword, H.E.
Barkindo describes Ayuk as a dreamer who has "taken the time to develop a
detailed roadmap for realizing that dream" and prompts people all over the
world to take the time to read Billions at Play in order to "play a part
in making his dream of petroleum-fueled economic growth, stability and improved
quality of life happen for Africa."
