This was revealed by the General Manager, Corporate Communications at NCDMB, Dr Ginah O. Ginah, during a media tour of the Nigerian Oil and Gas Park Scheme (NOGaPS), at Emeyah 1 Community in Ogbia Local Government Area of Bayelsa State at the weekend.

He also said that NCDMB promotes peaceful co-existence which fast tracks development in rural areas.

He reiterated NCDMB's commitment towards supporting and empowering host communities where it operates from.

‘’As part of our CSR policy, we continually seek to support and empower our host communities. At the construction sites of all our oil and gas parks, we engage the host communities in so many positive areas. Here in NOGaPS, they supply sands, granites and other raw materials needed by us that are equally available for use. However, all the materials they supply must go through proper quality control measures before being accepted,” he said.

Further, Ginah told members of the Guild of Corporate Online Publishers (GOCOP) touring with him that NCDMB’s landmark projects were helping immensely to develop and reposition host communities in Niger Delta.

He equally said that the desire and decision to positively assist and render support to host communities, especially those in the Niger Delta region, was for the greater good of the country.

"We need their support and co-operation to succeed in their territory. It’s a mutually beneficial relationship,” Ginah said.

As said by him, “Our six-lane road project powered by SUKUK, is currently under construction within this community. When completed, it will be a major access road linking NOGaPS to the rest of Bayelsa and even beyond. It will further open up the communities and bring more development that will be beneficial to the people. We are also building an international hotel beside our headquarters here in Bayelsa. When completed also, it will bring huge employment opportunities and further fast track development, he said.

The multi-billion NOGaPS Emeyah 1 scheme, he said sits on 24 hectares of land, and is billed for commissioning in the last quarter of 2023.
