Others include Ranti Omole (Chief Executive Officer/ Chairman OTC Committee, Radial Circle Group/ PETAN), Samuel Onyenwe (Community Relations Manager, Oando Energy Resources) and Taofik Adegbite, Chief Executive Officer of Marine Platforms.

Deborah Smith, spokesperson of the organisers, said at PNC, industry leaders would provide critical insights including how to ensure compliance with the Nigerian Content Act, whilst remaining competitive and driving their business forward in today's operating environment as well as how Nigerian stakeholders can capitalise on the opportunities that the Act provides.

They will hear from representatives across the value chain how they can maximise the potential of Nigerian Content.

The Bayelsa State Government is organising a Gala Dinner to offer a unique opportunity to rub shoulders with some of Nigerian Content's prominent thought leaders, trail blazers and regulators.
