Appointed as MD for Nigeria, I run the head office in Port Harcourt, opened an office in Lagos because of the award of a huge pipeline project from Nigeria to Ghana (via Benin and Togo) for an American EPC.

For one of the major mining projects in Niger, we set up mechanical shops, purchased trucks, trained drivers, provided the catering camp andran the guest house in Niger.  As a landlocked country, cargoes arrived in Cotonou and Lome and sites were only reached after more than 2000km of trucking.

Mauritania after being the center of some high level mining projects now has become the regional hot spot together with neighbor Senegal for some major offshore oil & gas projects.
