Dr Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu, NNPC GMD
The Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, has stated his resolve to usher in a new dawn of transparency through the periodic publications of the Corporation’s financial transaction insisting that transparency must be the watchword of every staff in the new NNPC.
Dr. Kachikwu who stated this at his maiden Town Hall meeting with the staff of the Corporation at the NNPC Towers, Abuja, said the new NNPC of his dream is a Corporation anchored on the foundation of transparency.
“I want transparency. Beginning from next month, I want to be able to publish what the company makes. I have told the President that as from next week I will be sending him weekly reports,” he said.
Charging the staff to break away from the old culture and bring creative solutions to the numerous challenges facing the Corporation, the GMD said with the kind of change he has in mind workers cannot afford to continue with business as usual.
He challenged workers disobey any directive from him or any superior officer that runs contrary to the rules, adding that, President Muhammadu Buhari will not ask him to do anything shady just as he himself would not ask any staff to carry out any unlawful duty.
Speaking further on the culture of transparency, he said it should begin by establishing the current financial status of the Corporation and that he would sign up auditors “to do a proper forensic audit to tell us where we are.”
