Additionally, hundreds of educational scholarships have been given to hundreds of Ilaje students," he said.

 

Chairman AMAICOMMA, Taiwo Oritsabinone, while thanking NNPC and Chevron for sponsoring the project, also commended the bidding process that led to the emergence of the contractor handling the project. "The contractor that is building this project emerged after a well-thought out process in keeping with the principles of Transparency and accountability which are values of the OMoU.

 

We are looking forward to commissioning the project within target time," he said.
