Group threatens showdown with Shell MD over contract

29 August 2011

Niger Delta Indigenous Movement for Radical Change, NDIMRC, yesterday, accused Mr. Mutiu Sunmonu, the Managing Director, Shell Petroleum Development Company, SPDC, of failing to make use of local contractors against the Nigerian Local Content law, and threatened a showdown with him.

In a statement by NDIMRC President, Nelly Emma (Cross River); Secretary, John Sailor (Bayelsa) and Public Rela-tions Officer, Mukoro Stanley (Delta), the group said: “President Goodluck Jona-than must intervene to save the Local Content policy. Shell has awarded all its major projects from 2011-2020 to the oil majors, such as O.P.I., Sapem and Daewoo, to the detriment of the local investors.
