Presco Oil Executive Giving Out Palliatives
Presco Plc, a prominent vegetable oils and fats producer in Nigeria, has continued to share love and compassion among several communities in both Delta and Edo states which make up a larger part of its host communities.
This is part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to these communities to alleviate their hardships and pains during these turbulent times of COVID 19 pandemic that is ravaging the whole world including Nigeria.
It would be recalled that the company had earlier sent 3,000 five-litre jerry cans of Presco vegetable oil as palliatives to Edo and Delta State governments. Leaders in each of the host communities, who took delivery of the items, expressed their gratitude for the goodwill gesture, adding that this will further grow and strengthen their support and cooperation with the company.
In the Ekosa community, Obaretin Estate, a community leader who was so pleased with the company’s assistance, noted that “PrescoPlc has shown itself as a company that cares for its host communities”.

Oghareki and Ajagbodudu communities in Cowan Estate, Delta State; as well as Orogho, Owuo, Obagie-Nunuamen, Iwevbo, Obanakhoro, Ekigbe, Ugbigun communities around Sakponba Estate, in Edo State all benefitted from the palliatives.
The jerry cans of PrescoOlein (vegetable oil), bags of rice and cartons of Indomie, were delivered to the communities by the company’s social team led by Paul Hameed.
