The chairman of NLNG, Mr. Babs Omotowa, who spoke at the inauguration of the ultra-modern NLNG Engineering Research Centre built for the University of Ilorin, said, “with today’s commissioning of the multi-million naira engineering research centre, NLNG is supporting the university’s mission of providing a world class environment for learning, research and community service.

“The UNILORIN support programme is another chapter in our momentous journey to build an even greater company to bequeath to our successors and to Nigeria.”

Omotowa added: “It is another feather in NLNG’s cap as a socially responsible corporate organisation and as part of our commitment to education; we also award scholarship to thousands of deserving young Nigerians at secondary school, university and postgraduate levels.

“We also endow the Nigeria Prize for Science and the Nigeria Prize for Literature worth $100,000 each, and built and run the Bonny Vocational Centre, which awards the International Technical Vocation, level 3 certificate of London City and Guilds and the Nigerian Skills Technical Certificate to graduates.”

The Vice-Chancellor of UNILORIN, Professor Abdulganiyu Ambali, lauded the giant stride of the NLNG in the quest to develop the universities’ research and engineering support, adding that the gesture would improve the technological growth of the country‎.
