THE Group Managing Director of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Dr Maikanti Baru, has urged NNPC members of staff to support efforts that would help move the corporation to a profitable state.
Baru stated this in a statement signed by Alhaji Gaba-Deen Muhammad, Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, on Wednesday.
Baru gave the advice at the first town hall meeting with members of staff in Abuja.
“We have a collective responsibility to ensure the success of this ongoing reform in NNPC.
“The task of doing so begins with you and me, by changing our attitude; particularly, the way we work and do business.
“We are all required to develop mindsets that emphasise diligence, commitment and sacrifice.
“Therefore, it is indeed not going to be business as usual, ” he said.
Baru added that NNPC under his watch would continue with the previous initiatives to further grow the business and increase profitability as envisioned by the founders of the corporation.
He noted that the corporation was in transition for positive reform, a transition to autonomy, profitability and growth.
“This transition is not only inevitable but imperative in the light of current business realities and the onus on NNPC to deliver on its statutory mandate,” he said.
He noted that in line with the NNPC’s mission statement of being an integrated oil and gas company engaged in adding value to the nations hydrocarbon for the benefit of Nigerians, the corporation under him would focus on a 12-point agenda.
This, he said, would help to support and drive the actualisation of the mission.
He outlined the agenda to include security, new business models, Joint Venture cash calls, production and reserve growth, NPDC growth, gas development, oil and gas infrastructure, refinery upgrade and expansion.
Commenting on behalf of the staff, the NNPC Group Chairman of Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas (NUPENG), Comrade Mathew Duru, expressed the readiness of the unions to support Baru and his management team to succeed in the task to reposition the corporation for growth and profitability.
