Non -Governmental Organisation under the aegis of Children and Women’s Rights Network has urged the federal government to intensify effort at the restructuring of Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, as it would benefit the country.
The group in a statement signed by its Executive Director, Mr. Moses Adedeji‎ and made available to journalists in Abuja, said the restructuring would ensure effective management of the corporation as well as boosts its productivity.
Adedeji said, “It would deny corrupt persons and unscrupulous cabals a foothold in the on-going process of change and progress”.
He called on ‎President Mohammadu Buhari and the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Mr. Ibe Kahikwu, not to relent in their efforts to bring change in the system for the good of Nigerians.
The said that individuals and groups calling for the sack of Mrs. Esther Nnamdi-Ogbue, Managing Director of the retail arm of the corporation, were those who are against the growth and development of the nation.
He described them as `cabals’ who were bent on frustrating the efforts to end the prolonged fuel crisis witnessed across the country and urged the government to ignore them.
The group further noted that, “Nnamdi-Ogbue’s approximately three decades of work experience within the NNPC’ s organizational structure and her academic accomplishments do not reflect any form of soiled record”.
