By Ifeoluwakitan Afolabi

Shareholders of Total Nigeria Plc have praised the company for its consistent dividend payment despite the challenging operating environment.

At the company’s Pre-Annual General Meeting (AGM) held in Lagos, stakeholders commended Total’s entrenched safety culture, innovation, and good corporate governance for its impressive performance.

Mrs. Ifeyinwa Chinwe, a stakeholder, attributed the company’s success to its commitment to excellence and urged the government to create a more business-friendly environment to encourage companies like Total to thrive.

She also emphasised the importance of individual actions in promoting sustainability, encouraging everyone to adopt eco-friendly practices like recycling, conserving energy, and reducing plastic use.

The shareholders’ appreciation and Mrs. Chinwe’s call to action highlight the importance of collaboration between businesses and individuals in driving growth and sustainability in Nigeria.

Addressing the shareholders, the chairman Mr Jean-Phillipe Torres said he was glad to meet everyone once again, especially the fact that he’s back to Nigeria and that Nigeria has become a place where he could call home.

He encouraged everyone to please do better and ensure they are doing the right thing at the right time.

“In 2023, TotalEnergies reported a turnover of $281.7 billion. For 2024, their Q1 2024 results indicate a slight increase in turnover compared to Q1 2023, reflecting higher energy prices and increased production,” he said.
