The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, has said that the new administration would ensure the efficient and profitable running of the corporation’s refineries to meet the energy needs of the country.
The Group Managing Director of NNPC, Dr Ibe Kachikwu, said this in a statement issued by Mr Ohi Alegbe, Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division in Abuja on Friday.
Kachikwu said that the corporate service unit and all the strategic business units of the corporation would henceforth be run as profit centres.
He said that the days of perceiving the corporation as a civil service were over.
The oil corporation boss implored the management to team up with him to close the skills gap and turn the fortunes of the corporation around.
He said efforts were on top gear to create a conducive working environment for members of staff.
According to him, for NNPC to transform into a profit establishment, the morale of the work force must be high.
He urged the management to provide leadership by example to the workforce while adding that sectionalism, tribalism and any form of non-transparent transactions must be completely stamped out.
Kachikwu also admonished the members of staff to act as change agents.
He assured that in the next 60 days, some of the strategic targets would be translated into concrete milestones to the appreciation of Nigerians.
