A group, the Niger Delta Indigenous Movement for Radical Change (NDIMRC), on Tuesday, commended Nigeria Agip Oil Company Limited ( NAOC) for the development of the Niger Delta region and implored other oil companies it accused of playing games with development of the region to emulate the company.
Specifically, the oil monitoring group, NDIMRC, showered praises on the Managing Director of the Company, Mr. Massimo Insulla, for being sensitive to the plight of the people of the region.
In a press statement signed by its President, Nelly Emma, Secretary, John Sailor and Public Relations Office (PRO) Stanley Mukoro, the group commended the Insulla for making the impact of the company felt in its area of operations across the Niger Delta.
According to the group, the Nigerian Agip Oil Company has warmed its way into the hearts of the people of the Region, saying that the Company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) was working wonders in the oil rich Niger Delta Region.
The group’s statement says: “We want to commend the Managing Director of Nigerian Agip Oil Company Limited, Mr Massimo Insulla for his managerial skills. The Company has been able to eliminate poverty from the Niger Delta Region through its laudable Developmental and Empowerment Programmes. Jobs have been created for our army of unemployed youths by the Company. We have been watching the activities of the Company closely and we are impressed with its Managing Director for bringing Development, Employment and Empowerment to the oil rich Niger Delta Region.
“The management of the Company is very sensitive to the plight of our people in the Region. The Corporate Social Responsibility of the Company is real. Other oil companies are playing games with the development of the Region. Agip has shown that it is possible to eliminate poverty and insecurity from the Region. No oil Company can beat the records of Agip. We want these other multinational oil companies playing politics with the development and Empowerment of our people to emulate the good example of Agip,” it said.
