President Kiir discusses investment in South Sudan with Nigerian businessman Tope Shonubi on 28 March 2019 (SSPPU Photo)
March 28, 2019 (JUBA) - South Sudanese President Salva Kiir Thursday met with the Executive Director of Sahara Group Tope Shonubi who expressed willingness to invest in oil and infrastructure fields.

Founded in 1996 and is based in Lagos, Nigeria, the Sahara Group, a power, energy, gas, and infrastructure firm, focuses on acquiring, exploring, appraising, and developing commercial oil and gas assets in basins and emerging frontiers in Africa.

The company which manages petrol stations also works in electricity distribution. Further, the company provides conceptualization, execution management, project financing, and advisory services in the areas of infrastructure and innovation projects.

The meeting was attended by the Oil Minister Ezekiel Lol Gatkuoth and Electricity Minister Dhieu Mathok.

After the meeting, Mathok told reporters that "the group is working in the field of energy, oil and gas as well as infrastructure and will invest in the country".

For his part, Shonubi said that the investments of the Sahara Group will contribute to the development of industry in South Sudan in partnership with its government.

He further said his group will create jobs for the South Sudanese youth.

The country is currently producing 180,000 barrels per day (bpd) and aims to hit 350,000 bpd in the near future.

Speaking to Reuters on the sidelines of the Africa Oil and Power investor forum in London in May 2018, Gatkuoth cited Nigeria’s Sahara Energy as one of three buyers for the country’s crude with cash advances.

In a speech delivered at the Africa Oil & Power Conference in Juba in November 2018; Valery Guillebon, CEO of Sahara Energy International, one of the group companies said there is a critical need to develop "new crude oil and product pipelines into South Sudan"

He explained that this would "speed up the economic growth of the country by reducing the landing cost and pump price of petroleum products; reducing pressure on road infrastructure and mishaps due to trucking, and increase the overall quality of life by reducing emissions and pollution".

    Jienge benydits and bandits ganging up with Nigerian scammers and criminals. This is surely a very dangerous mix. Nigeria has sooo much oil, but no fuel and SS has sooo much oil and also no fuel. This Nigerian criminal must fix his house first b4 coming to fool SS. This is jienge bullshit and Nigerian chickenshit.

      jubaone,

      Such is the catch-22 situation any tyranny and kleptocracy will find itself in....A country that does not want to have an open and transparent deals on its petroleum would continue to wallow in poverty. Both Nigeria and South Sudan are oil producers but have endemic fuel crises. They don’t look at the big picture!

          Of course as an errand and personal houseboy to the kiirminal, he can take you everywhere on his official visits. You are simply carried like a walking stick. You have NO RIGHTS to object. How could you visit Nigeria, when you cant visit your luak in Abyei? I pity you. Try something else, jienge!

            jubaone,

            These fatcats love travelling just so they sample the various types of food out there. A leech from Aweil one time lived off an Ethiopian in South Sudan after conning him of his hard-earned dime. The man is finally conered and is in jail in Uganda. Millions of Nigerians are leaving home because of mismanagment of the country’s reasources.

              You’re suggesting the "jienge millionaire" swimming in swindled dollars? Surely, hard earned money can’t be displayed in such a primitive way. Not even Bill Gates, JayZ would do such. But jienge losers without education and skills who are congenital thieves can do such. I read, that he has been incarcerated. Many of these parasites are still at large in SS.

          You are a very childish person indeed...! The so-called "government" may by your jenge thing but not the country called South Sudan. Anything that impinges on South Sudan is my business. You just visited Nigeria while some of us worked and lived in Nigeria. What do you know about Nigeria, you villager?!

              If you want to talk about South Sudan, I can OK it for you only in Social Medias like the way you are doing it now, but on the ground in South Sudan, no, you are not allowed to do that.People who liberated South Sudan and good people can run South Sudan, not lazy, cowards and stupid people.

              South South,

              Naming certain locations in Nigeria from the internet doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve visited those places.Everybody else can build a long list of states of any country from the internet and swear to God to have visited them,who cares?We want you to make a long list of your villages in Abyei,and be proud of your birthplace,only so,you as vagrant in Equatoria may get acknowledgement..

                      Given the fact that jienges congenitally are lazy dull thinkers who can’t develop anything for themselves,they always tend to occupy readymade achievements,other higher intellectually driven societies have created for their generations.Just look at how they’ve overrun Equatoria with their people and how jienges and nyagats thieves bought villas,houses in Kampala,Nairobi,Addis Abeba,its..

          South South,
          Nigeria is not a country a sound minded South Sudanese would damn ’consider equal to us or our country’ first of all Nigerians breed like pigs or rabbits. ’We want a ’concrete report from Olugan Obaseigio’. Nigeria has over 150 millions in a tiny country. Nigerians are the ones who run to Europe through Libya and go lie through their teeth that they are ’South Sudanese refugees>>>>

            don’t worry chap. Paul Malongdit and SPLM/A boys have done their job chap. The criminals who have been used in ’Rajah, Way Acholdit were the ’Nigerians, other West African fools and some criminals from Darfur’ the intrigue here is to ’reunite South Sudan with their cloned arabs of North Sudan. Something that will not happen under the sun. In fact, the opposite would be true>>>>

              Mr. South South,
              ’Biafra war’ between Northern Nigeria and Southern Nigeria was fought by the ’UK mercenaries’. And that is what the evils in the Island of England have ’hedging on over our country and our people’ with their so-called ’BREXIT’ all along. Call me ’mentally I’ll but l am of the boys who will again bomb these vermin out of our country and over our people>>>>

    South Sudan and South Sudanese have nothing against Nigeria and its citizens. Nigeria was one of few countries that actually attempted to solve South-North Sudan civil war. In fact, CPA was built-on from Abuja l & ll peace initiatives. No matter how much bad one heard, it’s immature to insult another country which did no harm to South Sudanese.

    Nigeria is in Africa & I don’t see why only they be singled out if there’re opportunities in South Sudan. Sudan is directly killing us & looting our oil, yet we call them brothers? Any displeasure ought to be thrown in right direction -toward our lazy, primitive president and his failed regime which endanger South Sudan by signing bad cotrcts and joining any organization they can spell its name.
