PTI graduates 1,102 students; 48 with distinction

…Confers Fellowship on Clark, Kokori and Barigha-Amange

WARRI 1,102 students of the Petroleum Training Institute (PTI), Effurun, Delta state, would on Saturday be awarded National Diploma and Higher National Diploma certificates on Saturday, October 7, 2017.

The Principal of the institute, Prof Sunny Iyuke, who disclosed this to journalists at a press conference held on the institute’s campus, Effurun, yesterday, in respect of the institution’s 2017 Convocation Ceremony, also explained that 48 of the graduating students ended up with Distinctions, while another 347 students made the Upper Credit.

Iyuke, who was accompanied by some members of the school’s management board, including the Registrar, Abubakar Tanimu, also said the institute would confer its Fellowship on three distinguished Nigerians, including Chief Edwin Clark, Senator Nimi Barigha-Amange and Chief Frank Ovie Kokori.

Iyuke also informed that a Convocation Lecture, titled ‘Youth Training Empowerment: A panacea for peace in the Niger Delta region’, would be delivered by the Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB), Engr. Simbi Wabote, as part of the convocation ceremony.

“This year (2017), the Institute will add 1,102 graduates of National Diploma (ND) and Higher National Diploma (HND) in the fields of Engineering and Sciences to the oil and gas sector, while 24 graduates will be awarded the PTI General Welding Certificates. It is my delight to announce that 48 students graduated with Upper Credits in the 2015/2016 academic session.

“The Institute will confer PTI Fellow (fPTI) on the following eminent Nigerians in honour and recognition of their outstanding achievements in education, economy, politics and notable contribution to the oil and gas sector. They are; Chief Edwin Kiagbodo Clark, CON; Chief (Sen.) Nimi Barigha-Amange, an alumnus of PTI and former Pro-Chancellor, FUPRE; and Chief Frank Ovie Kokori, former Secretary-General, NUPENG.

“You will agree with me that the theme of the convocation lecture is very apt. It is intended to stem the tide of youth restiveness in the Niger Delta region. It is my belief that it is only when youths are skillfully developed that the God-given wealth in the Niger Delta can be harnessed, devoid of rancor, acrimony and militancy”, he said.
