NNPC head hold talks with unions, workers

17 August 2015, 15:12

Abuja - Group Managing Director, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) Dr. Emmanuel Kachikwu, will be meeting with key officials of unions in the sector and the entire workforce of the national oil firm, Punch reports.

 The managing director had scheduled to meet with the unions as well as workers on Monday in order to address the workers’ concerns.

The oil workers had challenged Kachikwu to recover the stolen trillions of naira in the sector rather than retiring and sacking innocent workers which they described as “an act of cover-up.”

Kachikwu stated that the mandate given to him by President Muhammadu Buhari was to turn around the entire commercial processes and procedures in order to impact on the growth trajectory and operations of the corporation.

He noted that all Production Sharing Contracts, Joint Venture Agreements and all other contracts between the NNPC and its various partners would be reviewed to reflect current day realities in the global oil and gas industry.

Kachikwu stated that the recent repositioning was to put in place the right set of skills for performance stressing that the new arrangement provided a veritable vista for up and coming professionals in the corporation to have a speedy career path.
