Oando, JV partners boost road infrastructure

Oando Plc in conjunction with its Joint Venture (JV) partners, the National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and Nigerian Agip Oil Company (NAOC), has commissioned road projects with drainage systems in its host communities in Imo, Rivers and Bayelsa states.

In Imo, Oando and its JV partners commissioned three road projects, specifically the Flora Nwakuche road, the Echina road and the Bishop Nwedo road, with drains in the Oguta community.

Roads were also commissioned in the Ebgemo Angalabiri community, Ekeremore and in Etiema, Nembe in Bayelsa, whilst in Rivers, a 1.5km road was commissioned in the Aggah community, Onelga.

These road projects will improve access to and from the community, in the process spurring economic activities and growth and will improve the quality and standard of living of members of the community.

Speaking on the occasion, Community Relations Manager, Oando Energy Resources, Chief Sam Onyenwe said: “We recognise the importance of good road networks to the community and the economy at large.

We are hopeful that the commissioning and handing over of these roads today will lead to an improvement in the transportation and delivery of goods and services.

We are also hopeful that this will open up these particular communities to their neighboring communities and promote economic development.”
