SSEPLAT Petroleum Development Company Plc an indigenous independent oil and gas company, has resolved to revamp its operations through investing in building strong human capacity.
Speaking in a quiz competition organized for secondary schools in Delta and Edo states, Managing Director, Austin Avuru, stated the the rationale behind the competition was to build strong skilled set of members of its host communities.
“Our company’s commitment to intellectual capacity building remains strong and unshakable.
This is our third edition spanning for three years of organising the Pearls Quiz Competition and we are constantly impressed by the performance of the students especially the female students who are disadvantaged on account of their gender. We are convinced that the future of these children is bright indeed,” he stressed.
This year competition was keenly contested by over 1500 schools with Hebrew International Secondary School coming tops.
