NNPC subsidiary commissions civic, health centres in Edo communities



The Nigerian Gas Company (NGC), a subsidiary of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has commissioned a Civic Centre and Health centre to Oben and Evboesi communities in Orhiomwon Council of Edo State.

Managing Director of the company, Seyi Omotowa, who was represented by the Director, Support Services, Mrs. Uche Ossai, said the projects were NGC’s contribution to the development of the communities.


Omotowa said the company would continue to solicit the communities’ cooperation and assistance in maintaining peace to support its business growth for the benefit of the people in the communities and Nigerians.

“NGC will always encourage and appreciate communities that promote peace, dialogue and understanding in the resolution of issues. This is the hallmark of our community relations engagement process.

“We will appreciate direct contact with the management of NGC through our Public Affairs Department on any community issues and not through third parties. Problems are better solved where there is constant communication between entities with vested interest for the mutual benefits of all,” she said.


Group General Manager (GGM), Group Public Affairs Division (GPAD) of NNPC, Dr. Kenny Obateru, who was represented by Manager, Community Relations, Mrs. Doris Ohia, congratulated Oben and Evboesi communities, as beneficiaries and for creating the enabling environment for the projects.

He said the project will improve the socio-economic life of the people.

Also, Managing Director of Nigerian Gas Marketing Company (NGMC), Farouk Usman, who was represented by General Manager Commercial, Mrs. Chuddy Okocha, also thanked the communities for the opportunities for new projects in their domains.


“Without your permission and collaboration, they would not have been able to do this. I thank you for your support. We ask that you continue to serve any other subsidiary of NNPC the same way you have served us and even better.”

On his part, Secretary of Oben Community Elders Council, John Omokaro, who spoke on behalf of the Enogie of Oben, Odonijie Ogiewonyi, commended NNPC and NGC for executing the projects.
