In his remarks shortly after the award, Okunbor said:
“Over the years, several of your students have been and are still on the Shell university scholarship which has been helping our dear country grow its human capacity. Shell Companies in Nigeria have a long history of supporting education through scholarships and other initiatives. Since the 1950s, the Shell scholarship schemes have supported several thousands of students, many of whom have gone on to become Nigeria’s business, political and social leaders.
“Currently, we have over 3,500 university grants for Nigerian students. The Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company (SNEPCo) also built, here at this great Enugu State University of Technology, this same campus, a state-of-the-art ICT Centre. That Centre is one of six that we donated over recent years to major universities across Nigeria’s geopolitical zones.
“I also have several graduates of this university and of this state as my colleagues and former colleagues of the Shell Companies in Nigeria. They have always represented you with dignity. This award of honorary degree will, therefore, further cement the blossoming relationship between Shell Companies in Nigeria and the Enugu State University of Technology, and, indeed, with the government and good people of Enugu State.”
