Ascon Oil Company Limited, a downstream oil and gas service provider recently celebrated their 25th anniversary in Lagos, Nigeria. To mark this momentous occasion, the company hosted an elegant black tie event at the MUSON Centre in Lagos.

In addition to celebrating the company’s silver jubilee, the event was an opportunity for the company to unveil its new corporate identity. During her speech, Ascon Oil’s Group Managing Director, Barrister Grace Enenmoh reiterated the company’s commitment to delivering value driven services to customers and stakeholders by sharing her feelings on Ascon’s journey so far and where they are headed, “The 25 year celebration is relevant and emotive for the us as we (Ascon) as a company have overcome many challenges to become what we are today. I want to explore two particular themes in my comments today…These two themes are character and determination which will be more noticeable to all in the nearest future.”

In the same vein the Chairman of Ascon Oil, Alhaji Aliko Gwadabe asserted that “despite the loss our founder Engr. George Enenmoh, the management team of Ascon Oil have been able to better position the company as a 21st century organization ready to – Go Forward (Ascon Oil’s new tagline) ”. Also lending a voice of commendation at the occasion were the Minister of Works, Senator Mohammed Sanausi Daggash and the Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation,(NNPC) Austen Oniwon, both commended the management of Ascon Oil for keeping the flag of the company flying 25 years. They both described the growth of the company and its contribution to the nation’s economy as a monumental achievement, worthy of emulation by other players in the private sector. According to Daggash, who said he had a close relationship with the late founder of the company, the success achieved by the company before and after the death of George Enenmoh speaks volumes for the quality leadership of the Group Managing Director of the company, Grace Enenmoh and loyal support from management staff and stakeholders. Grace Enenmoh took the reigns of the company after George Enenmoh’s death,  despite the challenges in the aggressive oil industry, kept the company going and propelled it to greater heights, definitely an admirable story.

The official reveal of the new Ascon corporate identity was spearheaded by the Special Adviser to the President on Petroleum Matters, Dr Emmanuel O. Egbogah OON alongside Ascon Oil management and special guests.

Overall, it was an exciting event with a blend of classic and contemporary entertainment – from the classical music provided by an award-winning string quartet to the live band and then a stellar performance by D’banj. Congrats Ascon.

FACT, EVERYBODY CAN NEVER BE EQUAL.BUT WE SURE CAN REDUCE THE BRIDGE BETWEEN THE HAVE AND THE HAVE NOT.IT IS A MORAL OBLIGATION!! WHEN THE RIGHT POLICIES ARE PUT IN PLACE,IT WILL HAPPEN, NATURALLY.

      Firstly, turn your capslock off! It’s not a fight. Secondly, people get rewarded for their hardwork and deserve it!

      Says who Nma? Are saying it is all hardworks that are rewarded? Are you saying those in other sectors don’t deserve to earn as fat as those in the oil sector because they’re not hard working or are not good enough to work in that sector? I want to belief you’re one of those who are opportuned to have been born with the proverbial silver spoon in their mouth who care less about others. Nnenne made a very simple comment that makes sense and needs to be worked upon by our government. I live in a country where you can hardly differentiate between people’s class because none exist. Are you saying that is not possible in Nigeria? You better stop making provocative comments such as the one you made here else someone like me will label you as wicked and good for nothing. Haba!!!
