AAEA Nigeria Office : Targets Energy & Environment

Thanks to the vision and dedication of Ifeanyi Joshua Ezekwe, left, AAEA has been operating in Nigeria for almost a year. He has established the AAEA Nigeria Office in downtown Lagos, Nigeria and we couldn't be happier to have a presence on the continent. Democracy is fragile in Nigeria and the oil export situation is becoming more controversial for American corporations and the average Nigerian citizen.

AAEA-U.S. had the pleasure of meeting with Owens Wiwa, brother of the legendary, assasinated environmental activist Ken Saro-Wiwa, several years ago to discuss conditions in Nigeria. Owens and his family also enjoyed a tour of the Chesapeake Bay on the AAEA boat. The struggles of the Ogoni people continue today. America intends to import more oil from Nigeria. Nigeria is a wonderful country with a large population and a growing economy. We will work to enhance the environment of Nigerians while promoting increased cooperation with America. Thanks Joshua. We appreciate your great work.
