Sequel to a training presentation, which highlighted the capability and capacity of the Institute, Mr. Ahmed observed that PTI was in a vantage position to provide trainings otherwise sought overseas and in light with the economic realities of the country, PTI should be the leading glow in training of competent technical human capital for the oil and gas sector.

Still, Ahmed opined that the PTI Management should develop a framework that would show the content of its training modules, and how they could match specific needs of the organizations in Dangote Group, entreating PTI to forward a proposal that could lead to the firming up of the partnership between Dangote Group and PTI.
