Viathan Group has taken part in a stakeholder roundtable discussion tagged 1st Lagos State Real Estate Marketplace with the theme “Clean Energy to Power Technology”.
The event which was organized by the Lagos State Government through the office of the Honourable Commissioner for Energy & Mineral Resources, Engr. Lere Odusote in conjunction with other private sector stakeholders; was to identify and address the critical issues affecting the telecommunications and real estate sectors, with special emphasis on promoting the deployment of “Clean Energy” in Lagos state and to have the state lead the narrative in the country.
The Honorable Commissioner for Energy in Lagos State in his opening remarks stated that “the current administration of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu is focused on providing the leadership and the environment needed to making the state the benchmark for what Clean cities should be in Africa”. He emphasized that “while there is a lot of work to be done, there is no doubt that with the right framework, a synergy between public and private sectors and total determination, there is no doubt that we will not only achieve the target of Cleanest City in Africa, but that Nigeria with Lagos leading the way is well on course to meeting her pledge to the United Nations under the Paris Climate Accord to reduce carbon emissions in the state by 20% come 2030”.
Viathan CEO, Habeeb Alebiosu stated that “the roundtable provided a great opportunity for Viathan Engineering to bring the Clean Energy gospel to the ICT/Telecoms industry and to the general public”. Habeeb highlighted that Viathan operates a number of power plants in Lagos and its environs deploying only natural gas and other renewable forms of energy, thereby reducing almost completely CO2 emissions that adversely affects the environment. He further stated that “other ICT and Telecoms organizations should take advantage and be connected to Viathan’s network for round the clock power availability with no consequences to their technology and equipment”. “Our doors are always open for business” he concluded.
