Oil giant, Royal Dutch Shell, envisages further decline in demand for diesel and petrol to fuel automobiles.
General Manager, External Relations of Shell Nigeria, Igo Weli, said this during the unveiling of the next chapter of Shell award-winning #makethefuture campaign with a unique music video called ‘On Top of the World.”
In a statement, he reiterated the company’s decision to keep supporting and promoting initiatives that showcase clean energy.
Nigerian music icon and multiple award nominee, Yemi Alade, joined other international stars for the launch of Shell’s unique new music video, which spotlights a diverse range of clean energy initiatives across the world.
Shell has joined the train of countries and organizations that set deadline to fizzle out diesel or petrol engine-cars.
Asked about the correlation between this move and the promotion of bright energy ideas by Shell, Weli said: “What we are doing is to promote seven bright energy ideas. Shell has been here for a long time and we are going to be here in the future. Our company envisaged the world we need cleaner energy and what we have been doing is not by accident. All we have been doing is to keep taking the lead and this project and many others are here to prove it.”
On the musical video, he said: “This array of award-winning music stars including our multiple award nominee Yemi Alade is to draw many people into the conversation around access to more and cleaner energy. “Leveraging the power of music underscores the universal importance of the energy relay and the need for collaboration among business, communities, entrepreneurs, influencers and citizens.”
Yemi who was joined by Weli at the event said: “Music offers a good platform to draw attention to the energy needs of the world and the potential of new clean energy solutions. This is particularly true in Nigeria where we are working hard to provide the energy the nation badly needs to develop. “I’m happy to be part of this energy relay to encourage people to look at the innovative side of life. This is what the #makethefuture campaign seeks to achieve in the energy space.”
