The Special Assistant to the Cross River State Governor on Petroleum and Local Content Implementation, Mr. Anthony Imoh has frowned at companies within the State that don’t complement the government’s efforts in providing jobs for indigenes of the State.

He made this known in a meeting held recently with the management team of Niger Mill Company, Calabar aimed at making them see the need to implement the local content law to the later.

A part of his drive to see how well Niger Mill Company has intensified efforts to build requisite skills in local employees, he demanded for a comprehensive list of all Cross Riverians working in the company, warning that the government is watching and is ready to penalize offenders.

On their part while speaking, the General Manager of the company and the Human Resource Manager, Mr. Kert Kriek and Mrs. Affiong Archibong, respectively denied allegations of their company not upholding the dictates of the local content laws.

They revealed that plans are in top gear to establish a vocational college in Calabar as part of their company’s cooperate social responsibility.
