The General Manager External Relations for the Nigerian Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG), Dr. Kudo Eresia-Eke, is a regular face at the annual announcement of the Science and Literature Prizes endowed by NLNG. He, naturally, has a number of strong opinions on the prize, as well as deep knowledge on the breadth of NLNG’s commitment to the Nigerian project via its Corporate Social Responsibility.

He told me, in this interview, that the NLNG has sponsored numerous scholarships across Nigeria and has also built world-class laboratories in six universities across Nigeria, including a vocational centre in Bonny. He also mentioned the commitment of NLNG to build a “Mini Dubai” in the city of Bonny in the Niger Delta, among others. These are things I didn’t know before.

There were a number of other things I wanted to know, including whether the NLNG is committed to retaining the Science and Literature Prizes at $100,000 (it used to be $20,000, $30,000 and $50,000), and whether the Science Prize is a reward or an incentive.

His responses were frank and incisive. Watch.

I also found out on this day that Dr. Eresia-Eke himself is a creative writer. I asked him about this in the video below.
