We will continue to build the needed manpower and skills in the sector, Mr Darku told his audience at the launch of the Tullow Scholars Alumni at in Accra last Friday.
“We want to leave a legacy of shared prosperity; a legacy in which we are able to impact the communities in which we work. Education and capacity building helping to grow skills in the oil and gas sector in Ghana and build up needed manpower are important avenues to even those legacies”, Mr Darku assured.

He added that the Tullow scholarship programme was set up to utilize human resources, which is a sign of its dedication to the promotion of Ghana’s oil and gas sector.
“That is the reason Tullow launched the group scholarship programme to harness human resource potential for the good of Ghana’s oil and gas industry and the country as a whole.
Mr Darku expressed Tullow’s commitment to work with the government of Ghana and other agencies for the long term to develop knowledge that is vital for the development and sustainability of the industry.
That commitment, he said formed the foundation of the Tullow group scholarship scheme piloted in Ghana from 2011.
He said the beneficiaries of the initiative received excellent education and exquisite skills which he hoped will contribute to the country’s development.
“The British council has been a worthy partner helping us to develop and achieve our objectives identifying deserving Ghanaians from varied educational backgrounds for the scholarships. Together, Tullow and the British Council have worked to ensure that beneficiaries receive high standards of education and committed to applying those skills on their return to Ghana in order to contribute to the country’s development”, Charles Darku stated.
