21 August 2015, Abuja – The United States Government has pledged its readiness to work with the new management of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation in achieving the Federal Government’s reforms in the country’s oil and gas industry.
at the corporation’s headquarters in Abuja, the US Ambassador to Nigeria, Amb. James Entwistle, said his country was willing to provide all necessary support to the new NNPC management to realise its set goals and objectives.
Entwistle, in a statement by the corporation, noted that the job of the GMD of NNPC was about the most challenging job in Nigeria, adding that the US was convinced that Kachikwu had the skills, training and requisite experience to lead the oil and gas industry in Nigeria towards the path of growth and sustainable development.
Commending the US for the pledge of support, Kachikwu reiterated the determination of the new NNPC management to implement the spirit and letter of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s reform agenda in the petroleum industry.
The GMD stated 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.
“My mission is to re-direct and re-energise the work force for greater value addition and I believe that the NNPC, given the right leadership has what it takes to achieve this objective,” he said.
