Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) has commissioned a 552 million Naira (about 1.82 million US dollars) engineering building with state-of-the-art equipment at the University of Nigeria in Nsukka in southeastern Enugu state.
The project was jointly financed by NLNG and the university. The laboratory in the building was the fifth to be commissioned out of six such projects executed across Nigerian universities under NLNG’s University Support Programme.
Enugu state governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, who presided over the commissioning here Monday, said Nigeria NLG had demonstrated commitment to its corporate social responsibility by donating the building and equipment to six universities in the country.
The Managing Director of Nigeria LNG,Tony Attah, said the University Support Programme was set up by NLNG to provide “structured support for the development of research and scholarship in Nigeria”.
He said that six universities across the six geopolitical zones in the country were selected to benefit from the first phase of the programme. “In selecting the universities, excellence was the key determinant”, he said.
