The award ceremony, attended by prominent leaders from various industries, regulatory bodies, and government officials, served as a testament to Seplat Energy’s commendable efforts. Representing the company at the event were key executives including Adetaiwo Osindero, General Manager of Finance, Adebowale Eboda, Associate General Counsel Corporate & Compliance, and Stanley Opara, Manager of Corporate Communications.

In a parallel recognition, The Industry Newspaper’s 2024 Summit and Awards honored Seplat Energy as the Sustainable Energy Company of the Year. Additionally, Chioma Afe, the company’s Director of External Affairs & Social Performance, was celebrated as the 2023 Industry Pathfinder in Sustainability (Corporate). This acknowledgment underscores Seplat Energy’s steadfast commitment to responsible business practices and ethical conduct across its operations.

Expressing gratitude for the accolades, Seplat Energy extended appreciation to both publications for their dedication to developmental journalism. The company reaffirmed its commitment to leading Nigeria’s energy transition, with a steadfast focus on environmental stewardship, community engagement, and robust governance frameworks.
