    “Sunti Sugar had been involved in opening and maintenance of roads, construction of schools, provision of portable water not only to the community but to the state in the past years and I call on you all to give the Company maximum cooperation to bring more development to the area and enhance peaceful coexistence among the people”, the Etsu who was represented by the Galadima Rabba, Mohamned Abubakar remarked.

    The General Manager of the Company, Mr. Anlo Du Pisani said the project was one of many others earmarked as part of its social responsibilities and license to operate within the area.

    “We conducted an independent needs assessment of our host community and identified priority thematic areas for development and investment and using the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as reference, we resolved to support the communities in building of a school, rehabilitation of roads, water and with the latest on building of a Health Care Centre.”

    The General Manager who was represented by Mr. Barry Parking promised that the Company will not relent in its interventions towards improving the living standard of the people of the area.
