The Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB), has advised Nigerian youths, especially those from the oil-producing communities, to be involved actively in the oil and gas industry.
NCDMB’s General Manager, Zonal Coordination and Board’s Projects, Dr. Ginah O. Ginah gave the advice at the youth sensitization and enlightenment workshop held in Akure and Owo local government areas for the youth in the central and northern senatorial districts of Ondo State.
The participants were taught the fundamental mandates of the NCDMB and its activities, relevant skills in the oil and gas industry and how to acquire them.
He added that they are to promote the development and utilization of in-country capabilities for industrialization of Nigeria through effective implementation of the Nigerian content act.
He noted that the board is working on how to ensure more Nigerians, particularly youths from the Niger Delta region engage in relevant skills that will make them become employable in the industry.
