In December 2019 we concluded Memoranda of Understanding with the leaders of the host community, Ikuru and the other host communities of Ugama Ekede, Ayama Ekede, Asuk Ama and Asuk Oyet, in Andoni Local Government Area of Rivers State surrounding Otakikpo. These agreements followed our engagement with local communities since we acquired the interest in Otakikpo and began our consultation process, at the same time as commencing medical outreach services.
