Firm awards scholarship, donates classrooms
In pursuit of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Midwestern Oil and Gas, a marginal field operator, has awarded 42 scholarships to different categories of students in Delta State.
Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Charles Odita, an engineer, who announced the awards last Friday in Kwale, Delta State, during an elaborate ceremony that drew industry stakeholders and community leaders, noted that the company, along with its JV partner, Suntrust Oil Company, were “constantly searching for ways and means of improving the lives of our people both in the host community and in Delta State in general.”
The scholarship awardees, who were selected from previously-organised written tests, include 13 students in the secondary school category and 29 university students. The company had earlier advertised the offer wherein students were advised to apply.
The winners were given their scholarship award letters during the ceremony.
While the secondary students will receive N50,000 each, every session, the undergraduates will receive N150,000 each for the 2017/2018 session.
The Delta State Commissioner for Basic Education, Mr. Chinedu Ebie, represented by the Chief Inspector of Education, Ndokwa West Local Council, Mrs. Patience Ngozi Okwuchi, commended Midwestern Oil and Gas for faithfulness in pursuing its CSR every year.
