The United States Government has promised to support the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, in achieving its set goals and objectives, especially in its resolve to institute the reforms agenda of the Federal Government.
The US envoy to Nigeria, Ambassador James Entwistle, who disclosed this in Abuja during a courtesy call on the Group Managing Director of the NNPC, Kachikwu, noted that the US will provide all the support required to turn around the fortunes of the Corporation.
According to him, though the job of the Group Managing Director of NNPC is about the most challenging job in Nigeria, the US is convinced that Kachikwu has the skills, training and requisite experience to lead the oil and gas industry in Nigeria towards the path of growth and sustainable development and pledged their readiness to work with the new Management of the NNPC in achieving the Federal Government’s reform agenda in the oil and gas industry.
Commending the US for the pledge of support, Kachikwu reiterated the determination of the new NNPC management to implement the spirit and letter of President Muhammadu Buhari’s reform agenda in the petroleum industry, stating that the new NNPC would be driven by a deep sense of commitment to service delivery anchored on the principle of transparency, efficiency, people, purpose and profit.
