Anioma Media Professionals Task Kachikwu On Accountability In NNPC
THE Anioma Media Professionals (AMP) has congratulated Dr. Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu on his recent appointment by President Muhammadu Buhari and assumption of office as Group Managing Director (GMD) of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).
It also lauded the President for putting competence and merit above other considerations in making the appointment, saying this would help drive the federal government change agenda and sanity to governance and government-owned institutions.
In a statement in Lagos signed by its spokesman, Ken Ugbechie, AMP, which is made up of media practitioners from Delta North senatorial district of Delta State, otherwise called Anioma, charged Kachikwu to bring his wealth of experience in the oil and gas sector to bear in the corruption-ridden state-owned company.
While describing his appointment as apt and well deserved, the organisation charged the new NNPC boss to ensure accountability, due process and transparency in the corporation in line with the President’s anti-corruption posture.
AMP also urged Kachikwu to be steadfast, fair and firm in his drive to sanitise the NNPC, which has been in the news of late for the wrong reasons, and move towards normalising fuel supply in the country.
