Darlington, who is also the National Secretary, Association of Community Leaders of Oil Producing States in Niger Delta (ACLOPSON) said that: “Our association is glad to partner with NCDMB on this training and many other efforts the agency have been doing.

“We hope young people in Cross River will take this opportunity seriously and key into the local content development opportunity this training avails them.

“The workshop is to train a total of 500 youths in the six local government areas that makes up the central district of the state after which the next training will take place in Ogoja for the five local government areas that makes up that district.”

  • I worked in Mobil Producing Nigeria now Exxon Mobil,one day training is a slap in the face for understanding oil and gas operations.You need technical training and on the job training to fully understand the operations.I commend the effort but you need a curriculum and about at least 1 week intensive training to get the students better prepared.
