“Shell is delighted to support the Niger Delta University with this library project which we hope will open the doors for many Nigerian students and faculty members, to an era of academic excellence and world class accomplishment.

We see this as another demonstration of Shell’s long-standing commitment to sustainable development in Nigeria particularly the communities where we live and work.”

The library project will involve the furnishing and equipment of the library to international standard, state of the art academic materials, books, computers and other accessories.
There are also plans to ensure that the Library is linked to other notable international centres of learning around the world, to facilitate academic excellence.
