We held a two-day knowledge transfer session with Masters of Oil and Gas Law (LL.M) students from the Strathmore University Law School, Nairobi, Kenya at our head office. Our company was selected by the University as the preferred indigenous sector leader for the academia visit on the basis of its knowledge pool, success stories and impact on the local and African oil and gas industry. The highlight of the day was a session with our Group Chief Executive, Adewale Tinubu, who shared his experience as a trained lawyer that envisioned a brighter future as an entrepreneur in the Nigerian oil and gas sector and his aspirations for the sector.
On the second day, the students were invited to a tour of the company’s downstream affiliate, OVH Energy in Apapa. On conclusion of the tour, Micheal Horeria, a student said: “This visit to Nigeria, to spend time with both the private sector and the Government will save Kenya from potential pitfalls. What you are doing here at Oando can be replicated across Africa. The leadership, the quality of work, the talent pool, their in-depth knowledge is evidence of great investment and real added value to both the business and the sector.”
We thoroughly enjoyed having the students from Strathmore University over and we wish them all the best as they further their education.
