Lately, Last year, I paid a journalistic visit to one of the prominent Isoko top retired regional bank managers of Union Bank of Nigeria cum foremost profile writer, Chief Owho Ovuakporie at his private home in Lagos, as the discussion proceeded with great excitement of those he had met while unveiling one of his books then, he brought the name of Mr.Austin Ojunekwu Avuru,Chief Executive Officer,Seplat Petroleum Development Company PLC to my notice, little did I know that this Delta State-born illustrious son has graciously affected the oil and gas sector with professionalism and competence.

As I left Chief Owho Ovuakporie’s house that very day, I started making great research on Mr.Austin Ojunekwu Avuru from the internet and I discovered that he has affected many people through massive job creation and community development in Delta State and Africa.

Reading through many intelligent writers who wrote on his 60th birthday bash that was held last year in Lagos and watching some of the video clips on YouTube, I discovered that Mr. Austin Avuru description as a ‘Billionaire oil and gas magnate’ was not far from the truth.

Mr.Austin Avuru is from both Isoko North and Ndokwa East Local Government Areas of Delta State. He grew up part of his life in Abbi community in Ndokwa East where his humanitarian services are highly felt over the years.

In one of the  recent online interviews granted by Mr. Austin Avuru said, he would likely retire at his 62nd birthday as his successor in person of Mr.Effiong Okon is already groomed for the task ahead.

Mr.Austin Avuru is one of the most influential oil and gas gurus that has creatively used his position to offer scholarships for indigent Deltans, particularly the Abbi Community in Ndokwa East Local Government Area of Delta State.

His humility in business is worthy of emulation to the core and he has written several books on oil and gas matters being sold across Africa business communities over the years. He is divinely blessed with intellectual skills in business development across the globe.

As a trained geologist from the University of Nigeria Nsukka and a Post-graduate Diploma in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Ibadan, he knows what it takes to run a successful oil and gas business in Africa.

Having received many meritorious awards from different reputable organizations in Africa, his home-bred technocratic capacity has earned him respect in the oil and gas world. He remains a man after God’s heart in Nigeria and Delta State.
