Association hails petroleum reforms

12 November 2013, 14:37

Abuja - The Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) has commended the management of the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA) for the ongoing reforms in the downstream sector.

The Chairman of the PPPRA Branch of the association, Lazi Akhore, and the Secretary, Ghide Mohammed, said that PPPRA's management deserved a pat on the back for sanitising the sector.

The officers who spoke in a statement issued in Abuja, expressed their support for the Executive Secretary of the PPPRA, Reginald Stanley, for taking bold steps in saving over N409 billion in the subsidy scheme last year.

The union said that the Federal Government should be commended for taking measures resulting to an unprecedented clean-up of the downstream, following the appointment of Stanley in November  2011.

“It is worth noting that the PPPRA under Stanley has recorded significant achievements in the operations of the subsidy scheme, resulting to the saving of over N409 billion in 2012 alone.

“PENGASSAN as a patriotic body notes these achievements and hereby commends the executive secretary of the PPPRA for making the difference in the downstream sector since his appointment.

It advised the management of PPPRA to stay on track and ensure that it remained firm and purposeful in ensuring quality service delivery for the good of the nation.
