Managing Director of Shell Nigeria Gas, SNG, Limited, Mr E. D. Ubong, has admitted that the multinational oil firm has not done enough for Abia State, where it has been operating in Owaza community in Ukwa West Local Government Area of the state for over 60 years.

Speaking during a courtesy call on Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, in Umuahia, Ubong said that though the company had tried in the past, it has not done enough as “the first son” in meeting the expectations of the people of the state, as the case in other states.

He also apologised to the government and people of Abia State, particularly the oil bearing communities in the state, for their long years of neglect, including its inability to return tax to the state.

“We thank you for your patience. We have had a long relationship with Abia State, and we know a lot is expected of us. We also know we have not done enough,” he said.

Speaking further, he said the company has enjoyed a robust relationship with Abia State, adding that Abia was within the catchment area of the undergraduate and post graduate scholarship programme of the company.

He thanked the governor for the long lasting relationship existing between the state and Shell and disclosed that the company was to build a 10km gas line in the state to take gas to Osisioma and another to Ariaria and the Ogbor Hill area.
