Group Managing Director, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mallam Mele Kyari says President Muhammadu Buhari remains the only president that has never interfered in the operations of the corporation.
Kyari commended President Buhari who also doubles as the Minister of Petroleum for giving the corporation’s management free-hand to deliver on its mandate.
He stated this on Monday in Sokoto while delivering the Usmanu Danfodiyo University’s 2021 First Quarter Public Lecture Series entitled, “Navigating energy transition and the imperatives of university-industry collaboration.”
He said the crop of NNPC management was so privileged to have a president who never interfered in what the NNPC does.
“That is very unprecedented, and it has gone a long way to help us deliver on our mandate, especially the drive towards domestic gas utilisation,” Kyari stated.
The GMD tasked governments and institutions on the African continent to adopt technology and innovation to achieve energy sufficiency and its economic multiplier effect on their people.
“African Governments and institutions must rise to the occasion to leverage technology and innovation to support energy sufficiency, industrialization, job creation and economic growth,” Kyari emphasized.
