Upstream oil and gas company Moni Pulo has announced investments in healthcare and education in Nigeria
The firm this week unveiled two health centres in the Adadia and Anakpa communities, which it had built and furnished, as well as a school, which the company recently renovated in the Idu community.
The firm said that it is committed to leaving a positive footprint in its host communities, and that the recent work was in response to needs identified by the people of the Uruan Local Government Area (LGA) in Akwa Ibom State, where all three facilities are located.
The Uruan LGA is within the OPL 231 acreage, which Moni Pulo operates under a production sharing contract (PSC) agreement with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).
Speaking at the commissioning ceremony in Anakpa, Moni Pulo executive vice-chairman, Seinye OB Lulu-Briggs, said, “Corporate social responsibility is an integral part of operations in Moni Pulo.
“Moni Pulo always strives, in consultation with her host communities, to carry out identified sustainable development programmes that will leave a positive impact on the lives of people in the community.”
