Intels Logistics Services Limited has received commendations from a Royal Father in Rumuorianwo Community in Rivers state, Chief George Amadi, for its contributions to the development of numerous communities in the Niger Delta Area.
Chief George Amadi spoke at the completion and inauguration ceremony of a road project championed by Intels in his community.
According to him, Intels Limited had spent N156 million on road projects in his community in past two years and still champions other community development projects.
The Royal Father who is also the Chairman of Joint Intels Landlord Families’ Association revealed that Intels interlocked road network, built drainages and embarked on solar street lights projects in Rumuorianwo Community of Rumuokwurusi town in Obio/Akpo Local Government Area.
His words; “…Our long standing relationship with Intels Services has been most rewarding. About two years ago, our legendary Ogboroama Unity Interlocked Stone Road Project built at the cost of N58 million was inaugurated. On August 27, 2015, we witnessed the inauguration of not just a road but a network of roads criss-crossing and inter-linking major parts of the entire landlord families. The network of roads measuring one kilometer was built at the cost of N98 million.’’
He added that with the completion of the road, the macro-economic activities as well as the economic wellbeing of indigenous communities linked by the road will be enhanced.
Chief George explained that the road would further 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 as the solar powered street lights will improve the security of the community.
“The street lights have illuminated the entire community… Intels management should take pride to show case 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.
The Paramount Ruler of Rumuorianwo Community, Eze S.C. Wokoma also commended the company for adding value to the Rumuorianwo community while the Regional Human Resources Manager of Intels Services Limited, Mr. Michael Ndon applauding the cooperation and peace experienced in the Community, promised that Intels would continue to partner with the community for the progress of both parties.
