By Binebai Princewill
The Natural Oil & Gas Suppliers Association of Nigeria (NOGASA) on Wednesday 15th of July 2020 inaugurated its units in Delta State to swinge into action immediately to sanitize the oil and gas sector of dealers of illegal petroleum products.
The inauguration which was done at Km 4, refinery road, opposite army barracks in Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State witnessed the presence of high ranking officials of NOGASA.
However, shortly after the inauguration of the various units of the Natural Oil & Gas Suppliers Association of Nigeria in Delta State to commence work immediately, Comr. Sumanu Gbenga, Benin Zonal Chairman charged the new officials to take their work serious as they have been chosen among the multitude of persons.
Mr. Gbenga noted that the new officials should see their inauguration as a call to duty, stressing that they are the foot soldiers of the organisation.
It would be recalled that the inauguration took place immediately after the opening ceremony of the Delta State secretariat.
On his part, Mr. Pamah Ogonofiyepon Nehemiah, Delta State task force coordinator of NOGASA who hails from Gbaramatu Kingdom in Warri South West Local Government Area of Delta had vowed to go hard on illegal products.
Speaking further, Nehemiah stated that he will be working closely with relevant security agencies as the task force coordinator of Delta State by ensuring that together with his task force members, they will be handing over seized illegal petroleum products from such dealers to the appropriate security agencies.
In his words: “Nogasa stands to sanitize the oil sector and our suppliers should buy their products from Government approved depots and not adulterated products, we will continue to monitor activities in this regard. Nogasa is a government approved body.
“Any illegal adulterated products seized will be handed over to members of the Civil Defence Corpse for the law to take its cause”
Meanwhile, the Natural Oil & Gas Suppliers Association Of Nigeria (NOGASA) is structured along national, zonal, state and units that are working together to sanitize the sector.
A background research reveals that the Natural Oil and Gas Suppliers Association of Nigeria (NOGASA) is a premiere organisation of legitimate, organised and proficient suppliers, stakeholders and practitioners in the nation’s oil and gas sector distribution service chain.
The Association offers a comprehensive, mutually benefiting interactive and informative network for bonafide suppliers, marketers, distributors and other related enterprises in the sector’s business environment.
Hitherto, there has not been a body with the above enumerated protective and supportive platform; and where such existed, it was either misplaced or misguided and consequently with little or no positive effect.
The emergence of NOGASA is purposed at providing necessary succour, concern, responsive support and a robust harmonisation of Oil and Gas Suppliers legitimate businesses and business interests. NOGASA is nationwide in its reach and affiliation and is quality service based.
