Abuja - The Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff
Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) has lauded Cross River State government for
initiating a world-class conference facility which the union said would serve
as an iconic venue in the sub-Sahara Africa.
Frank Esanubi, leader of the delegation and Chairman of
PENGASSAN, Chevron Nigeria Ltd Branch, made the commendation during an
inspection tour of some of the legacy projects embarked by the State Governor,
“The project is a novel idea and one project that I will
advise government to ensure its completion before the expiration of this
administration because it will add value to their tourism drive. I commend
Governor Liyel Imoke for what is currently developing, I learnt the conference
facility has 5 000 seating capacity, and currently so many organizations which
have large members will always prefer Abuja for their events because there is
an International Conference Centre there, but with this facility now, coupled
with peace and serenity of Calabar, I am sure the traffic will gradually move
to Calabar,” he said.
Esanubi said Calabar was the best choice place of having
meetings or conferences in Nigeria.
“While planning for this conference, we agreed that our
choice of a venue must be a place where the people are receptive, a place that
we can feel at home, safe and it was the unanimous decision of the executive to
settle for Calabar. So, for any institution or organization, Calabar is the
best choice whenever you think of having meetings or conferences in Nigeria.”
He said Cross River State had been blessed with good
leadership compared to other states in the federation since the return to
“It is something that is worthy of emulation and
commendable too,” concluded Esanubi.
