As he reviewed his career path in Gabon, Godson Njoku highlighted the warmth of the welcome he had received from the local authorities and residents of Gamba on arrival and throughout his term of office. He explained his choices of social investment for the wellbeing of the community in Gamba and the conservation of the region’s environment. “The vision of Shell Gabon is to be the most innovative and competitive partner for Gabon in the energy sector. To name but a few examples, we have made major structural investments such as the replacement of the export pipeline at Gamba Terminal. This should extend the life of our oil terminal for several decades. We have also redeveloped the Toucan field to assure national production for the long term. Finally, another Shell Group subsidiary made a deep sea strike in 2014, which is still being evaluated,” Godson Njoku recorded.
He warmly thanked Minister Désiré Guedon, who is from Ndougou Département, for all the support given to Shell Gabon’s activities, and the local authorities for their co-operation and understanding. Finally he thanked all the subcontractor companies in Gamba, and paid special tribute to all his colleagues and the directors who had supported him during this two-and-a-half-year period. “The trust, respect and, above all, the determination of all partners to work together for the Republic of Gabon and for their own benefit remain essential success factors for the future of Gamba,” he declared, before concluding with a loumbou proverb: “As a child of the village, I am leaving with my village in my heart. Gamba, I will never forget you.”
