« Il n’y a pas beaucoup d’entreprises qui disposent de la station de ravitaillement verticalement intégrée de Nikkiso avec des systèmes de liquéfaction internes et des systèmes de chargement de remorques, des pompes cryogéniques, des tuyaux isolés sous vide, des cuves isolées sous vide, des vaporisateurs cryogéniques, des contrôles industriels, des services d’autorisation, d’installation et de maintenance », a déclaré Mike Mackey, Président, Ravitaillement en carburant et solutions, Nikkiso Clean Energy & Industrial Gases. « Nous construisons des stations de ravitaillement alternatives depuis 1998 et nous sommes fiers que notre travail contribue à un monde plus propre et plus sain. »

Plusieurs stations d’hydrogène liquide ont déjà été mises en service en Corée du Sud, ravitaillant avec succès des autobus l’un après l’autre, et augmentant leur capacité. Les autres stations en Corée du Sud seront mises en service au cours des douze prochains mois.

Abibiman Foundation marks Day of the African Child, calls for peaceful elections


Abibiman Foundation, a nongovernmental organization, has commemorated this year’s Day of the African Child to address issues confronting young children in Ghana.

The Day is set aside to reaffirm commitment to nurturing, protecting the rights and well-being of every African child.

It was on the theme: ‘Education For All Children In Africa: The Time Is Now’ and brought together stakeholders and students from some selected schools in the Greater Accra region.

Mr kwabena Okine Ofosuhene, Chief Executive Officer of Abibiman Foundation, said the commemoration was a major platform to highlight the key issues confronting the African child and to find solutions to them.

However, he said children rely on the good decisions, choices and actions of those of the voting age, and were affected by policies and actions of stakeholders and governments.

‘It is, therefore, incumbent on us all to work together and ensure that the 2024 elections focused on addressing the medium and long-term social, economic, environmental an
d political challenges facing the country.

He called on the Electoral Commission to remain professional, impartial, and ensuring a free, fair and peaceful elections.

He said stakeholders must use economic diplomacy, advocacy and campaigns to sensitise, raise awareness and educate the public on the importance of maintaining the peaceful environment that supported businesses in Ghana to thrive and ensure sustainable livelihoods, peace and development.

‘It is equally important for us all to understand that working together to promote and protect the peace in the country, especially before, during and after Elections is also the means of promoting and protecting the needed conducive environment for our children in the community to thrive, to generate the needed resources to enhance socio-economic development,’ Mr Ofosuhene added.

He called on all the youth to desist from rigorous practices such as hooliganism, double voting and vote rigging during the 2024 elections.

Dr Albert Ahenkan, Professor at the Unive
rsity of Ghana Business School, said it was important to ensure students’ access to quality education and sound leadership to prepare them for success in the 21st century.

He said we must acknowledge that our children were the heartbeat of our nations and the promise of a brighter future.

‘Our Children are not just our future but they are our present, and it is our duty to ensure that they have the tools, opportunities, and support they need to thrive’, he added.

He said as we celebrate the Day, it was time we confront the stark realities that many of our children face across the continent, saying millions of children are deprived of basic necessities such as education, healthcare, and protection which made them vulnerable to exploitation, violence, and poverty.

Dr Ahenkan said government must prioritise policies and programmes that support children’s rights by allocating adequate resources to education, healthcare, and child protection services.

Government must also enforce laws that safeguard children’
s rights and hold accountable those who violate them, he added.

He encouraged communities and families to educate their children on their rights, education and health for their own safety and benefits.

NCCE encourages Ghanaians to sustain the environment by planting trees


Mr Justice Yaw Ennin, Western Regional Director for the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), has encouraged Ghanaians to participate in the tree planting exercise initiated by the government to sustain the environment.

That, he said, was the only way to help restore the vast forest reserves and farm lands destroyed by the activities of illegal miners.

Mr Annin gave the advice in Tarkwa when he launched the annual NCCE Citizenship Week for Basic Schools in the Tarkwa Nsuaem Municipality.

He said, ‘We are fast depleting our environment, this is the fourth year since the Government launched the Green Ghana Day programme, I am told every year they plant 10 million tree seedlings of various species, so am expecting 40 million trees. I am, therefore appealing to our children to embrace this laudable exercise to restore the country’s forest.’

The main theme for the week-long programme was ‘Together we can build Ghana,’ and a sub theme for the school children was ‘Children let’s build Ghana.’

Mr Ennin
explained that each year, the Commission dedicated to remind pupils of their right and responsibilities as citizens, and the role they play in building the country because the future depends on them.

He also educated the pupils to ensure their parents lived in peace with others as the country prepared for the 2024 polls, importance of peaceful election and the negative consequences of violence.

Mr Peter Dyaka, Municipal NCCE Director for Tarkwa Nsuaem, added that the week-long activity covered thirty-one Basic Schools both public and private schools.

Some of the schools his office visited were the University of Mines and Technology (UMaT), Tarkwa Basic School, Roman Catholic Basic School, Melody International School, New Excellence Basic School, Golden Age School Complex, Gogo Memorial Basic School, New Atuabo Community School among others.

He said, ‘The message we carried across the various schools was the responsibilities of children in building Ghana because nation building required the efforts of ever
ybody, both the elderly and the young ones.’
