Chevron establishes hybrid library in Sokoto school

By Ado Hassan, Sokoto
A leading oil company, Chevron Nigeria Ltd., Thursday, unveiled plans to establish a fully-stocked hybrid library in one of the secondary schools in Sokoto state.
‎Chevron’s Director of Policy, Government and Public Affairs, Senator Gbenga Aluko made the disclosure in Sokoto at a courtesy visit to Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal on the company’s plans.
He explained that the idea of building the library was part of their social investment in the area of education and that similar investment is being carried out to improve water supply and healthcare delivery in other parts of the country.
Accordingly, Aluko while briefing the governor ‎said Chevron had in the past established a chest clinic at the Murtala Muhammed Specialist Hospital, Sokoto while a number of Sokoto indigenes have benefitted from the company’s scholarship for medical and engineering students.
Speaking, Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal said Sokoto is open to partnering with public and private organisations to promoted and enhanced community engagements through corporate social responsibilities of sorts.
He noted that Chevron had in the past intervened in the health sector in the state, adding ” I am happy you have now expanded your area of intervention to include the education sector.
“Education has been the number priority for this administration. The sector got the highest allocation in our annual budgets in the last two years. We hope to maintain similar trend in the 2018 budget.
“We welcome your decision to construct this library and I assure you that the government will maintain the facilities and ensure it is fully utilised for the benefit of the intended beneficiaries,” Tambuwal added.
