by on December 21, 2015

The management of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has refuted reports that it plans to sack about 1,000 of its workers, saying the report is misleading.

This was disclosed by Group General Manager, Corporate Affairs, Mr. Ohi Alegbe,

His statement read; “For the avoidance of doubt, what the Honorable Minister said at the meeting was that ‘as part of the reorganization programme of the corporation, half of the over 2,200 staff presently at the corporate headquarters would be redeployed to the subsidiaries with a view to making them more effective.’
The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) is the oil corporation through which the federal government of Nigeria regulates and participates in the country’s petroleum industry.
