By Adedapo Adesanya

The Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) has assured that four major energy projects being developed by the board in partnership with investors will be completed before the end of this year.

This was disclosed by the Executive Secretary of NCDMB, Mr Simbi Wabote, who noted that one of the projects is the Duport Midstream Limited Energy Park, which comprises 2,500 barrels of crude oil per day modular refinery, 40 million standard cubic feet per day gas processing plant and 2 megawatts power plant.

Another of the projects is the Rungas facility in Polaku, Bayelsa State, which will produce 400,000 units of composite Liquefied Petroleum Gas, LPG, cylinders per annum.

The others are the Bunorr production plant in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, which would produce 48,000 litres of base oil per day and the Nedo Gas facility upgrade and expansion, expected to process 80 million standard cubic feet per day of gas.

Speaking at the one-day workshop organised by the Reform Coordination and Service Improvement Department of the Ministry of Petroleum Resources, he also stated that five LPG storage/bottling plants and six LPG depots are being developed in partnership with Butane Energy Limited in 10 states in the northern part of the country and Abuja.

He said this would be completed in two phases – six in the first quarter of 2022 and the rest in the fourth quarter of 2022, with the opportunity to create 1,900 direct, indirect, and induced jobs.

Mr Wabote also hinted that the board was partnering with the Lagos Deep Offshore Logistics Base (LADOL) to develop a 24 megawatts power plant at Tarkwa Bay, Lagos State, to provide uninterrupted power supply to the free zone, which hosts key facilities required to service the oil and gas industry. The project is expected to generate 400 jobs.

The NCDMB boss, who maintained that the agency’s partnership investments cut across modular refineries, LPG value chain, and other areas, said the agency had 23 project sites spread across Abuja, Bayelsa, Bauchi, Delta, Edo, Gombe and Imo state.

Other locations, according to him, include Jigawa, Kaduna, Katsina, Kano, Lagos, Nasarawa, Niger, Plateau, Rivers and Zamfara States.

Mr Wabote explained that the board committed equity investments into strategic projects that align with the government’s policies with a view to catalysing them to success, and would exit those businesses once they become successful.

Enugu Disco

By Adedapo Adesanya

In furtherance of its quest to consistently enhance customer experience and deliver seamless services, the Enugu Electricity Distribution PLC (EEDC) has launched a new mobile app known as EEDC Connect to better serve its franchise states.

The multi-functional application is designed to enable customers to interface and access the company’s services with ease.

Some of the services the new app will offer include payment of bills, prompt request for support, viewing of payment history, registering complaints and viewing your logged complaint to ascertain its current status.

According to the Head of Corporate Communications, EEDC, Mr Emeka Ezeh, the company has embraced information technology as a tool to make its operations efficient and transparent, both for the company and its customers.

To get started, customers are expected to download EEDC Connect on their mobile phones from the Google Play Store, register and obtain a One-Time Password (OTP) which should be keyed in to complete the process.

The launch of EEDC Connect is coming barely two weeks after the company introduced its Online Bill Download Portal, a service that allows its customers to conveniently view/download their energy bills right from the EEDC website and make payments without necessarily waiting to receive the physical copy of their bills.

Mr Ezeh reiterated that the introduction of these initiatives is part of the company’s ongoing automation processes aimed at achieving efficiency and improving customer experience.

The Enugu Disco is responsible for the electricity distribution activities of the five south-eastern states including Enugu, Ebonyi, Imo, Abia and Anambra.

Sylvester Oromoni

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

The Lagos State Police Command on Saturday night said it was yet to receive a formal report of the death of one Sylvester Oromoni, a 12-year-old student of Dowen College, Lekki, Lagos.

The death of Master Oromoni has been trending online for the past few days and the video of his painful death sparked reactions after it was reported that he was bullied in school and allegedly forced to swallow substances believed to have eventually killed.

The incident forced the Lagos State government to shut down the school indefinitely for investigation.

On Saturday night, the spokesman for the Lagos Police Command, Mr Adekunle Ajisebutu, a chief superintendent police (CSP), said though none of the parents or the school has formally filed a report on the matter, the command has swung into action to get to the root of the matter.

According to him, “the Commissioner of Police, upon hearing about it instantly, directed the Divisional Police Officer, Maroko Division under whose jurisdiction the place of incident is to immediately visit the school to carry out an initial investigation into the incident.”

“This directive has been carried out as an investigation into the case has since commenced. However, in view of the seriousness of the case, the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, has also been directed to take over the investigation of the case immediately,” he added.

“Members of the public, particularly the deceased’s bereaved parents, friends and relatives, are assured that the Lagos State Police Command has deployed all available human and material resources at its disposal to unravel the circumstances surrounding the sad and unfortunate incident,” the police image-maker for the command stated.

“While a diligent investigation is ongoing, members of the public are advised against taking the law into their own hands. They are also enjoined to refrain from comments that could jeopardize the investigation,” he appealed.

Concluding, Mr Ajisebutu said, “The Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu, while commiserating with the bereaved family, has equally assured that the outcome of police investigation would be made public in due course.”
