AN ADDRESS PRESENTED BY THE HON. COMMISSIONER FOR PETROLEUM, ABIA STATE BARRM CHIZURU KANU ON THE OCCASION OF COMMISSIONING OF THE SECOND MEGA PROJECT OF UKWA WEST CLUSTER DEVELOPMENT BOARD ON 8th DAY OF MAY 2018.
I am delighted to be part of this historic second Mega commissioning of SPDC/JV GMON PROJECT AND PROGRAMMES IN UKWA WEST CLUSTER DEVELOPMENT BOARD, a laudable initiative of stakeholders of the oil rich area of the state.
Ministry of Petroleum which represents the state government in this venture is appreciative of the progressive partnership between Ukwa West and SPDC, initiated to fast track development of oil producing Areas of the state.
It is heartwarming to note this initiative has translated into several development project such as INSTALLATIONN OF TRANSFORMERS, CONSTRUCTION OF CONVENIENCE BUILDING AND SOLAR POWERED BOREHOLES, AWARD OF SCHOLASHIPS TO DESERVING STUDENTS AMONG OTHERS IN VARIOUS COMMUNITIES OF UKWA WEST LGA, a feat which has brought profound joy to indigenes of the cluster.
While I congratulate SPDC, Ukwa West Cluster Development Board and all stake holders of ukwa West for this success story, I wish to remind you all that the result of hard work is more work as a lot still as envisioned by our dynamic governor, Dr Okezie Victor Ikpeazu.
To that end I would like to request SPDC to establish similar cluster in other Oil Producing Area of the state as what is good for the goose is equally good for the gander.
It is also my sincere wish that SPDC will expedite action on the reactivation of abandoned Oil and Gas facilities in the state to increase the crude oil production capacity of the state.
Once again congratulations and may these project continue to improve the social and Economic fortune of God’s own state.
Thanks you and God Bless
BARR. CHIZURU KANU
