Nnadi pinpoints education and capacity building as Total’s CSR thrust, noting that the company prioritizes and is committed to social welfare with education ranking top of the list.
“Total is currently focused on education and capacity building through its CSR and has invested substantially in the six geo-political zones of the country.
