Viathan Engineering Limited a leading indigenous provider of integrated captive and embedded power solutions and a pioneer in the Nigerian power industry recently in London executed a technical partnership agreement with Caterpillar dealer Unatrac Ltd UK; a leading industry supplier of Caterpillar generators.

Having set a plan to achieve a generation capacity of 200MW over a five (5) year period from its current 50MW, Viathan Engineering Ltd thus found in Caterpillar/Unatrac a formidable partner to work with in the realisation of its ambitious growth plans. Choosing a major manufacturer like Caterpillar is significant says Viathan CEO Ladi Sanni; “the engine technology, technical capabilities, aftersales support and extended footprint in Europe and Africa which ensures short turnaround for gas engine delivery, makes Caterpillar/Unatrac a partner of choice for Viathan. This in turn enables the power company to meet customer demands much faster”.

The Executive Director, Lagos and West Bank, Marketing, Mr. Ayoku Liadi, who represented UBA’s Group Managing Director, and the Chairman of UBA Foundation, Mr. Kennedy Uzoka, at the event in Lagos, expressed his excitement over the initiative, adding that as a corporate entity, UBA, through its Foundation has decided to give back as a family, starting by impacting knowledge and skills to students and participants.

Liadi said, “Our goal with this initiative which is in its second year, is to help the under privileged and young children learn vocational skills that will assist them along the path to financial freedom as they start businesses of their own. We have therefore, created a platform to encourage people who have various skills and talents to pass this on to the younger generation.

He said, “At UBA, we want students to inculcate the habit of savings, especially for the rainy day. It is important that you are cautious about the future, because nothing is guaranteed. Therefore ensure that you bear this in mind when you receive your pocket money and allowance no matter how little; because when you save today, it will go a long way to help you tomorrow, “Liadi told the students who filled the Onikan Youth Centre.

Students from Modupe Cole Memorial Childcare and Treatment Home; Standard Hallmark College, Mushin; Child Life-Line,Lagos and Moyin Rainbow Foundation, Lagos; were some of the students who participated at the event.

“At UBA Foundation, we are constantly being asked by other staff members how they can help. A lot of people are genuinely interested in doing good. With the Each One Teach One initiative, you don’t need a huge sum of money, you just need to give of your time and talent to at least one other person. It is simple. It is effective and the impact is ginormous imagine how many people across 20 countries in Africa benefitted today from someone just taking a little time to help them acquire new skills or hone old ones. There is something really gratifying about giving back. It helps the communities and helps you grow as an individual.’ Said Atta
