Kyari: PIA provides enormous business opportunities for NNPC Ltd

Mallam Mele Kyari, Chief Executive Officer, Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC), says Petroleum Industry Act (PIA) provides business opportunities that will enable the company earn more revenue for the country.

According to a statement issued by Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division of the Corporation, Garba Deen Muhammad, Kyari made this disclosure while addressing staff of the organisation in a townhall meeting held at the NNPC Towers, at the weekend, with staff outside the Corporate Headquarters (CHQ) participating virtually.

Highlighting the significance of the PIA to the NNPC and by extension the Nigerian economy, Mallam Kyari said the new legislation has raised shareholders’ expectations on the company, even as it has given it a wide room to make progress.

According to the CEO, the PIA had put “all money-making options on the table; it is up to us to take advantage of it”.

He said as a result of the new legislation, NNPC Ltd would not only shed some of its toxic liabilities but will be the largest and most capitalised company in the whole of Africa and, potentially, the most profitable on the entire continent.

The CEO charged employees of the organisation to ensure the company becomes a commercially viable entity and a multi-billion-dollar company that will continuously deliver value to its shareholders–the over two hundred million Nigerians.
