Mr Richard Kennedy, Director,Texaco Nigeria Outer Shelf while handing over the project over to the school state that several other of the company’s projects across the country are either on going or completed.
He explained that the projects mainly libraries constitute an aspect of the strategic intervention plan of the OML 132 partners in promoting a better life for Nigerians. He noted that since 2012, they have built, furnished, equipped and handed over 10 hybrid libraries to different states of the federation.

Ninety-six Kaduna State indigenes have benefited from the Agbami scholarship programme since 2013. Also,102 indigenes of the state have been enjoying the NNPC/Chevron JV scholarships from 2014 to 2017”. We are grateful to the Kaduna State government for all the support we enjoyed in the implementation of this project” On his part, Mr.Roland Ewubare, of the National Petroleum Investment Management Services(NAPIMS), stressed that Rimi College is borne out of a deliberate effort by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation(NNPC) and its OML partners to intervene in human capacity development, a critical sector of the economy.
He, however, concluded that apart from professional scholarship, the Agbami parties have also donated clinics, science laboratories, and promoted awareness programmes on HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases in several communities across the country.
