COVID-19 lockdown forces NLNG from commissioning headquarter - ITREALMS

ITREALMS:

The lockdown occasioned by spread of Coronavirus or Covid-19 has forced the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) from commissioning its corporate head office in Port Harcourt, reports ITREALMS
.

Mr. Tony Attah, NLNG MD/CEO, disclosed this during a visit to Governor Nyesom Wike, and said that the lockdown has caused the delay of the formal commissioning of NLNG new Corporate Head Office at Eastern By-Pass in Port Harcourt.

"Our plan had been to host the event early this year," he declared, stressing that "We shall hold the commissioning of this impressive edifice as soon as practically possible."

He also revealed that the Bonny Bodo Road is being financed almost 50 per cent by NLNG.

"Your Excellency, it is timely that I share an update on Nigeria LNG’s biggest CSR project; the Bonny Bodo Road, a 38km stretch of road with 3 major bridges (Afa, Opobo and Nanabie) and 10 mini bridges. NLNG presently funds 50% of this endeavor," he said.

The COVID-19 situation, he also said, has impacted work progress, resulting in main construction sites in Bodo and Bonny remaining closed since March 2020.

"However, dredging and bush clearing works, requiring minimal physical contact, continue," he said.

Attah equally pointed out that this project has been identified as one of the critical FGN infrastructure projects.

"Plans are on for the Contractor to resume works fully at Bodo and Bonny sites under a revised COVID-19 Protocol, ensuring safety of personnel and continued sources of livelihood to the youths from these communities," he said.

NLNG further commended the Rivers State Government for ensuing peaceful cooperation from all communities along the Road Right of Way leading to minimal disruption of work.
