In a bid to bridge the Information Communication Technology (ICT) gap in local communities, the Nigerian Agip Oil Company (NAOC) Limited and its Joint Venture (JV) Partners have donated an ultra-modern ICT centre to Obrikom community, Ogba-Egbema-Ndoni Council of Rivers State.
Speaking while commissioning the project, which was attended by hundreds of elated Obrikom indigenes, Executive Chairman of the council, Ifeanyi Odili, commended NAOC and its partners- the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and Oando Plc- for the gesture, saying the centre would create enormous impact within the community and its environs.
In his remarks, General Manager District of NAOC, Tiani Alessandro, said as the world is going ICT-driven, it was imperative for the JV Partners to donate a project that would be sustainable as the company aims to impact positively on the communities it operates in.

Alessandro, represented by the Stakeholders Management and Community Development Division Manager, Dennis Masi, said the impact of the project in the community couldn’t be over-emphasised.
The member representing Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni State Constituency II in the Rivers State House of Assembly, Nathaniel Uwaji, while commending the community for their peaceful disposition, thanked the NAOC JV for the good gesture.
Earlier, Managing Director of Oando Plc, represented by the Community Relations Manager, Samuel Onyenwe, said the firm was happy to identify with the development of Obrikom.
In his welcome address, Chairman of Obrikom Community Development Committee, Gift Nkweke, thanked NAOC JV for the endowment, noting the centre was very important to the community as no society can function effectively in today’s world where virtually all human activities are ICT-based.

The centre is equipped with 32 Lenovo desktop computers; HP Jet Printers and accessories; wall mountable stabiliser; inverter-UPS System and various accessories.
Present at the event were the Vice Chairman of the council, Mrs. Christiana Obiazi Adiela; Chief of Staff, Chijioke Ejebide; IEME Manager, NAOC, Naina Osima; Assistant Manager, Government Relations, Uloma Olosunde; Community Relations Officer, Oando, Orok Rosta; Paramount Ruler, Obrikom, Eze Christian Nkisa; Councillor representing Ward 5, ONELGA Legislative Council, Azubuike Awuye; as well as youths and women representatives.
