The National Action Committee on the African Continental Free Trade Area Agreement (NAC-AfCFTA) has announced a partnership with PUTTRU, Africa’s digital platform for facilitation of investments in energy companies in the continent.

The Secretary of the Committee, Olusegun Awolowo, disclosed this in a letter he personally signed, stating that PUTTRU’s technical expertise in the energy/power funding, financial networking, credit enhancement matters, vast regional integration experience in the region, as well as its pan-African posture spanning over a decade informed the partnership with it. 

Awolowo added that the firm’s competence, capacity and financial networking would be a huge asset in the committee’s drive to actualise the goals of the Power for Trade Shop (PFTS) initiative of the Federal Government of Nigeria.

“We look forward to an effective working relationship with PUTTRU as we partner to create the needed synergy for connecting Nigerian businesses to Africa”, he said.

PUTTRU was named the winner of the MEA Markets’ 2023 African Excellence Awards as the ‘Leading Capital Investors for the African Energy Market’.

The feat announced by the UK-based MEA Markets, a quarterly journal, which is an arm of the AI Global Media, was in recognition of PUTTRU’s pioneering role in disrupting the traditional capital raising and investment process, by cutting through the challenges of bringing investable businesses and serious financiers together.
