“We look forward to delivering on all our aspirations as we remain committed and focused in the new year,” Sylva said in a brief statement sent to TODAY NEWS AFRICA in Washington D.C. and shared on his and the ministry’s official twitter accounts.

Mr. Sylva may need that commitment and focus, especially with the African Energy Chamber saying in its 2020 outlook of oil and gas industry in Africa that production in Nigeria and Angola, the biggest oil producers in Africa, is likely to fall by more than one fifth.

“Nigeria and Angola will continue to dominate but their share of regional production will fall by more than one fifth (to 58 percent) during this period, a shift driven in part by significantly increased output from Mozambique, Senegal/Mauritania and Tanzania,” it said.
