I’ve enjoyed 29 years of working in NNPC, says Kyari

The Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Mallam Mele Kyari, says he has enjoyed every moment of the 29 years of working in the national oil firm.

Kyari urged the newly recruited graduate trainees to join hands with other staff members in building the corporation to become the national oil company of choice, and to go the extra mile to achieve extraordinary results.

He made the call during a virtual platform session on Thursday with the 1,050 graduate trainees that were newly recruited by the corporation as part of their onboarding programme, according to a statement on Sunday.

The NNPC noted that the Federal Government COVID-19 guidelines limited physical contacts, necessitating that the onboarding session be held virtually.

Kyari asked the newly recruited employees to come up with out-of-the-box ideas and help the corporation deliver on its mandate of crude oil exploration, refining, marketing, supplying and distribution of petroleum products as a key enabler of the national economy.

“This is a company you will love to work for. But more than that, you will stay here and build a very fulfilling career. I have been around here for 29 years, and I have enjoyed every moment of it,” he said.

He assured the new employees of top management support, describing them as excellent minds representing the future of the NNPC.

“From top down of the corporation, gender inclusiveness is reflected,” Kyari said.

He urged the newly employed staff to uphold the NNPC core values of respect for the individual, integrity, transparency, accountability and professional excellence, assuring that the corporation was committed to their career growth and development.

Responding on behalf of the graduate trainees, Safula Karanga from Gombe State commended the GMD for the strong leadership he had provided for the corporation through the completion of the recruitment process and the medical interventions to the 36 states of the federation to combat the coronavirus pandemic.
