The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Renewable Energy Association of Nigeria (REAN) took place on Wednesday, 1st July 2020. The unprecedented circumstances resulting from the ongoing covid-19 pandemic meant that REAN embraced technology to ensure that the virtual event delivered the objectives of the meeting.
Members representing numerous sub sectors across the renewable energy value chain, and the Board of Trustees were present at the online event. REAN members also voted in a new executive committee for a two-year term; these are the president, Segun Adaju, Tunji Iromini the Vice President and Rolake Rosiji, Treasurer. it was a bold step, continuing a tradition of adaptability that is a significant part of the REAN ethos. In a nod to REAN’s commitment to best practice in corporate governance, independent observers representing local and international organisations in the renewable energy sector praised the transparency and seamlessness of the election process and encouraged the association to continue their immense contributions towards achieving 40% renewables in Nigeria’s energy mix.
Brig. General Anthony Ukpo, REAN Chairman, Board of Trustees said, “I commend the secretariat led by the Executive Secretary, Lande Abudu for laying the foundation for this successful meeting. Our new Exco, you are tasked with building on the many gains of our formidable association, to ensure that our activities continue to contribute towards sustainable development in Nigeria.
