NNPC developed rigid hiring process

A source told ThisDay that NNPC Limited has developed a rigid hiring process that cannot be altered since becoming a limited corporation according to the Companies and Allied Matters Act.

The introduction of the Petroleum Industry Act strengthened the organisation's governance structure, making it easier for NNPC Limited to convert into a CAMA firm and more resistant to manipulation.

The source noted that NNPC Limited's hiring procedure follows the best governance practices and is difficult to influence.

She disputed the allegations of secret hiring as unfounded and emphasised that NNPC Limited's governance framework is still solid and in place.

The source said:

“That report is fake. You cannot just wake up and start hiring people secretly at NNPC Limited. There is a structure that allows the NNPC Limited to have the best governance procedure for its recruitment.

“The NNPC Limited has a standard recruitment structure that cannot be bent; it’s a strong governance structure that no official can just manipulate,”

The source further emphasised that there have been ongoing activities to disparage the NNPC management, headed by Kyari.

According to the source, some NNPC Limited employees' recent retirement and reorganisation may have influenced dissatisfied people to circulate such rumours.

The source added:

“Remember that few days ago, some people were asked to proceed on retirement and you don’t expect some of them who still have about 15 months to retire to be happy for being asked to leave the system.”

The source said the management is fully aware of ongoing defamation campaign against the company's executive team.

The insider also said the management is unfazed by the development since it is committed to fulfilling its "Four P" mission of production, production, production, and production following the president's instruction.

In an earlier report by Legit.ng, a source in the NNPCL stated that the company signed crude oil contracts with several entities.

As contained in a Punch report, the development prevented the company from initially meeting Dangote's demand.

The Executive Director of Dangote Group, Devakumar Edwin, claimed in a Monday interview with S&P Global Commodity Insights that the NNPCL had committed its crude to other organisations.
