on


Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) has applauded the management of Dangote Petroleum Refinery and Petrochemical Free Trade Zone Enterprises (DPRP) over its adherence to the local content law in the execution of its projects.  NCDMB therefore declared its intention to further partner with DPRP for effective implementation of the Local Content policy in the country.
Director, Monitoring & Evaluation, NCDMB, Mr. Akintunde Adelana, who represented the board’s executive secretary, Engr. Simbi Wabote, made this disclosure at the weekend during the DPRP Nigerian Content Sensitization/Awareness Creation Programme, titled: “Let’s Walk the Nigerian Content Talk Together,” at Lekki Free Trade Zone, Lagos. According to him, the Dangote Refinery project is expected to close a major gap in the supply of petroleum products in the country.

Wabote said “we consider this as a very important project and we are willing to partner with the company to ensure full implementation of the local content policy. We embarked on this journey with the company a long time ago and we are ready to partner with the Dangote Group”. “Part of what you see to today is part of our efforts to ensure that the company and its contractors comply with the local content policy and they have put in a lot of efforts in this regard.” Speaking further, Wabote described the Local Content Act as the quantum of composite value added to, or created in the Nigerian economy by a systematic development of capacity and capabilities, through the deliberate utilisation of Nigerian human, material resources and services in the Nigerian oil and gas industry.
