SaNTA will be working with and consulting the NCDMB along with indigenous Nigerian and international fabricators, engineering and oil companies; graduates from the academy will work in facilities throughout Nigeria and will contribute to increasing the fabrication capacity in existing and new facilities throughout the country, Samsung and LADOL will create at least 10x jobs outside LADOL for every job created inside LADOL.
