July 2011 till date, Madeira street, Maitama. The Niger Delta Amnesty Programme was launched in 2009 but by 2011 when we keyed in, it was a case of preparation meeting opportunity. From that period, we have kept expanding our businesses.

Our growth has been organic. We play fair. We play by the rules. But we also compete aggressively.
