Royal father commends Intels Group on CSR projects for community



A Royal Father in Rumuorianwo Community in Rivers , Chief George Amadi has commended the Intels Logistics Services Limited for its contributions to the development of numerous communities in the Niger Delta Area.


He gave the commendation in Rumuokwurusi on the recently completed and inaugurated road project in his community, while acknowledging that Intels had spent a total of N156 million on road projects in his community in the past two years among other numerous community development projects.

 Amadi who is also the Chairman of Joint Intels Landlord Families’ Association,  said that Intels interlocked road network/drainage and solar street lights project in Rumuorianwo Community of Rumuokwurusi town in Obio/Akpo Local Government Area which was inaugurated on Aug. 27, 2015 was a testimony of their long-standing relationship with Intels Services, which has been most rewarding.

He said: ``About two years our legendry Ogboroama Unity Interlocked Stone Road Project built at the cost of N58 million was inaugurated. On Aug. 27, 2015, we witnessed the inauguration of not just a road but a network of roads cress crossing and inter-linking major parts of the entire land lord families. The network of roads measuring one kilometer was built at the cost of N98 million.’’

He said that with the completion of the road the macro-economic activities as well as the economic well-being of indigenous communities linked by the road would be enhanced.

Amadi said that the road would help decongest the busy Igwurutu road as well as provide alternative routes into the community during peak traffic periods while hotels in the community will experience higher patronage just as landlords will earn more money through rents.

He also said that the entire Intels land lord families would experience new life by this project, while the solar powered street lights would improve the security of the community and help to reduce criminal activities at night.

``The street lights have so illuminated the entire community such that any one visiting at night will think he/she is in London. Intels management should take pride to showcase the project as their worthy contribution to the socio- economic development of the host land lord communities,’’ he said.

He listed other benefits accruing from the relationship with Intels to include scholarship, skills acquisition, women empowerment, medical, contracts, graduate trainee/employment programs.

Also speaking on Intels community relations, the Paramount Ruler of Rumuorianwo Community, Eze S.C. Wokoma commended the company for all it has been doing for the community and promised that the Rumuorianwo community would continue to partner with Intels.

In his remarks, the Regional Human Resources Manager of Intels Services Limited, Mr Michael Ndon, commended the community for maintaining the peace needed for the smooth operation of the company and promised that Intels would continue to partner with the community for the progress of both parties.
