PRESS STATEMENT

 

The Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) worldwide felicitate with Eng. Simbi Kesiye Wabote on his appointment as the Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB). It is our expectation that Eng. Wabote as a world class Engineer with several years of practice in the oil and gas industry especially in the Niger Delta region would bring his experience to bear in promoting community content in the oil and gas industry in Nigeria.

ENG. SIMBI KESIYE WABOTE

The IYC expect Eng. Wabote to address the key question of community content within the context of the local content management which has been a source of concern to oil and gas bearing communities of the Niger Delta region. Presently local content is been used as a subterfuge by companies owned by Nigerians from other parts of the country to take jobs that ought to be for indigenes of oil bearing communities in the Niger Delta region. This is oppressive and totally unacceptable. The IYC insist on community content within the local content in the oil and gas industry and we charge Eng. Wabote to handle this issue as one of his key assignments as Executive Secretary of the NCDMB.

The whole concept of local content was designed to partly address the marginalization of the people of the Niger Delta in the oil and gas industry; hence community content must occupy a pride of place in the affairs of the local content board. We express our willingness to collaborate with Eng. Wabote to actualize his mandate in the local content board.

Signed for the

Ijaw Youth Council (IYC), worldwide:

Eric Omare,

Spokesman
