We, at Greater Port Harcourt City Development Authority, are committed to growth for the Authority and all our employees for the Development of the Greater Port Harcourt City.

It is the culture of the Authority to develop its own leaders by hiring individuals with high potentials and promoting from within. To achieve this goal GPH uses a Continuous Development Process (CDP) to advance the skills and competencies of all employees. Commitment to training at every level combined with opportunities for job assignments, allows employees to gain experience and develop new skills.
Nonetheless, GPH expects its employees to take charge of their own careers, taking personal initiatives to develop the qualifications to grow and advance. This high performance culture is a part of GPH core values and is reflected by how we operate. In today’s competitive business environment, each employee is perceived as being a key contributor to the creation of value for the Authority.

We recognise that our long term success depends on the abilities and competencies of all our employees with emphasis on the execution of our projects in the increasingly complex environments we operate.

Commitment to the values of the Authority is a vision shared by all GPH employees who demonstrate their commitment to the ‘The Authority’ culture.


Integrity is the foundation of our individual and corporate actions. GPH employees are accountable for our actions; accept our role to be responsible citizens committed to the health and safety of people, protection of the environment, and compliance with laws, regulations, and Authority policies. GPH employees are honest, trustworthy, respectful and ethical in our actions, honour our commitments and accountable for our actions, successes and failures.


GPH employees share resources towards the achievement of common goals. All employees are committed to the achievement of common goals, open communication is encouraged up, down, and across the organisation and most importantly through recognition of the diversity of our workforce.



GPH employees focus on what is important via establishing and communicating clear expectations, relentlessly pursuing success, striving for flawless execution, celebrating success and the application of learning gained from failure and continuously looking for new ways to improve the delivery of services.
