A’Ibom Student Wins N.5million  NCDMB Essay Contest

A student from Akwa Ibom State, James Ubon has won the 2018 annual national essay writing competition organized by the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board  NCDMB, with a star prize of N500,000 and a laptop.

The first year of electronics and computer technology in the university of Calabar defeated 10 finalists to emerge overall winner of the competition.

Executive Secretary of MCDMB, Simbi Wabote said the essay competition was part of the board's mandate to educate Nigerians generally and build their capacity in the oil and gas industry.

Represented by the general manager, corporate communication and zonal coordination, Dr. Bina Obinna, the executive secretary said essay writing was an activity that brings out the best in students.

He noted that the competition offered the students an opportunity to express themselves on what they wanted NCDMB to do to actualize the local content policy in the oil and gas industry.

Also speaking, consultant to NCDMB on the competition, Mr. Eyinimi Omorozi said the essay writing competition was organized for year one and two undergraduates from the 36 states of the federation, out of which top 10 emerged.

The competition, he said, was to encourage writing and research abilities of Nigerian undergraduates, adding that the event which held at Lady Daima Memorial Event Place in Yenagoa, was the second edition.

Ubon thanked NCDMB for organizing the event, noting that it had exposed him to the opportunities that were available for young men in the oil and gas sector.

From Nsit Ubium local government area of Akwa Ibom state, the 28-year old UNICAL student promised to make judicious use of the half a million naira star prize.
