Energy no longer luxury but a right – Opoku Prempeh at COP27

Minister of Energy Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh has made a strong case for Africans to be supported in the collective effort for all to transition to the use of green energy.

He said Africans would not want to pollute the environment in the quest to develop, yet would have no option to do so if they cannot afford cleaner energy.

He said most people on the continent would not take likely any move to stop them from the use of their natural resources to generate energy for their development.

Dr Opoku Prempeh was speaking as a guest during a forum held on the sidelines of 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Egypt.

He said the provision of affordable energy has become a sine qua non to development.

“Because energy is not a luxury but a right, a fundamental right and so governments must work to ensure that the whole population has access to energy to develop socio-economically,” he stated.
