Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria, PENGASSAN has lauded Cross River State Government for initiating a world-class conference facility which will serve as an iconic event place in sub-Saharan Africa.
This declaration was made by Comrade Frank Esanubi, the Leader of the PENGASAN delegation on Friday last week during an inspection tour embarked upon by Governor Liyel Imoke after their 2-Day Conference in Calabar.
Comrade Frank Esanubi, who is also the Chairman of PENGASSAN, Chevron Nigeria Ltd branch, stated that: “The project is a novel idea and one project that I will advise government to ensure its completion before the expiration of this administration because it will add value to the state’s tourism drive.
“I commend Governor Liyel Imoke for what he is currently developing. I learnt the conference facility has 5000 seating capacity, and currently so many organizations which have large members will always prefer Abuja for their events because there is an International Conference Centre there. But with this facility now coupled with peace and serenity of Calabar, I am sure the traffic will gradually move to Calabar.”
On the choice of Calabar for the Conference, the chairman said: “While planning for this conference, we agreed that our choice of a venue must be a place where the people are receptive, a place that we can feel at home, safe and it was the unanimous decision of the executive to settle for Calabar. So, for any institution or organization, Calabar is the best choice whenever you think of a conference.” He said.
