SAPETRO as a good corporate citizen is committed to social responsibility and has over the years identified positively with the aspiration of Nigerians. SAPETRO strives to make a difference in the social lives of Nigerians through investments that provide lasting community benefits. Our three primary focus areas for community investments are improving healthcare delivery, enabling education and training opportunities.
In 2007, SAPETRO undertook to finance the construction and equipment of Nassarawa State University Health Centre. The Company believes that if appropriate healthcare facilities are in place, easily treatable diseases which cause death among Nigerians could be tackled. This project therefore aims at empowering the local community to manage their healthcare needs. The Company believes that good health forms a solid foundation for national development.
As part of its commitment to making a positive impact in Nigeria, SAPETRO made cash donation towards the Nigerian Legion Remembrance Emblem in 2008. The Company shall continue to reach out to maintain good relations.
In supporting related national and industry initiatives, SAPETRO collaborated with other Oil and Gas companies to sponsor the 2010 International HSE biennial Conference in Nigeria.
SAPETRO is committed to the fight against potentially fatal diseases in Nigeria and it is suppporting the Thomas John Prostrate Foundation which is generating prostrate cancer awareness in the population and providing access to screening and early detection.
SAPETRO is also supporting the Ogochukwu Promise Charity Trust Fund and in April 2011 made a donation towards the on-going building of an orphanage in Yaba, Lagos.
SAPETRO shall continue to remain a responsible and good corporate citizen ensuring that the benefits of its resources pass on to local Nigerian communities through positive contributions to social development initiatives. As a wholly indigenous Oil and Gas Company, SAPETRO sees itself as part of the Nigerian people. Therefore, the Company is committed to building mutually beneficial long term relationships that simultaneously provide lasting community benefits and direct business value.
