The AGPC MD, therefore, charged the Contractor in charge to ensure that the project is completed on time and safely. Mba further explained that future graduates from the Centre will be equipped with the right skills to make them relevant in the oil and gas sector.

According to him, AGPC has plans to execute human capacity development initiatives for the host communities of its ongoing ANOH gas plant project as it continues to foster stronger ties with critical stakeholders.

Commenting, the Executive Secretary of NCDMB, Engr Simbi Wabote, commended AGPC for being a partner of choice in the push to complete the Centre for Skills Development and Training.

The project commenced in 2011 with the motive to develop human and institutional capacities in the Nigerian Oil and Gas Sector but was later stalled due to lack of funding. The Centre comprises of a Tower Block, Heavy Duty, and Light Scale Training Centre, Library and Auditorium.
