Ukori during the Annual General Meeting of EGCDF in Effurun, Uvwie Local Government Area of the state, said the AGM was held in order to render account of stewardship to meet up with statutory requirements and international best practices.

He said that the Chevron Nigeria Limited, CNL, Global Memorandum of Understanding, GMoU, which gave birth to EGCDF, had thrived for 13 years with tremendous positive impacts on their communities.
