To promote effective research and academic excellence among Nigerian undergraduate students in the field of oil and gas, do you know that the Buhari administration has been sponsoring an Annual Undergraduate Essay Competition so that our youths can build local capacities in that field?
The 5th Edition was held in November 2021 with the participants asked to write their entries on this topic: “Ten Years of Local Content Implementation in Nigeria: The Successes, Challenges and the Imperative of extending beyond Oil and Gas”.
At the end, Mr. Enomfon Akpan, a 200 Level student of Mechanical Engineering in the University of Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, won the competition with a cash prize of N1m while the 1st and 2nd runners up, Mr. Michael Williams of the University of Lagos and Mr. Godstime Nwaeze of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University in Anambra State won N500,000 and N300,000 respectively.
With incentives such as this, coupled with the necessary consistency of the scheme, our students will always feel motivated to engage in research that will not only stand them out but promote Nigeria’s quest to achieving 100% local content in its productive sector.
