The Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) and ANOH Gas have entered into a partnership towards the completion of the Center for Skills Development and Training (CSDT) located in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
Stalled since 2014 because of insufficient funds, the center is aimed at training Nigerians in the human resource needs of the Nigerian oil and gas sector as well as promoting the development of skills, Executive Secretary of NCDMB, Engr Simbi Kesiye Wabote noted.
“Globally, achievement of the local content agenda is hinged on domiciling value-adding activities and this is heavily dependent on locally available skilled manpower. It is in recognition of the critical role that skilled manpower plays in the development of local content that the Board has Technical Capability Development as one of the strategic pillars of its 10-Year Strategic Roadmap,” he said.
Managing Director, ANOH Gas Processing Company Limited, Mr. Okechukwu Mba said: “I am particularly happy for the benefits the country stands to gain from the completion of this facility. It will produce youths equipped with relevant skills they require to pursue a rewarding career in the oil and gas industry.”
