NNPC begins next phase of job recruitment exercise

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation( NNPC) has warned Nigerian citizens to be wary of any ongoing recruitment in the name of the corporation.

Distancing itself from a viral report on social media that the cooperation has released forms for recruitment, the corporation warned job applicants to verify publications before releasing their details to online job scammers.

Naija News reports that the corporation in a statement signed by its spokesman, Garba Deen Muhammad, in Abuja, on Sunday, said the viral reports of NNPC conducting recruitment is not true.

The statement reads: “This is to inform the public that the information circulating on the Social Media that the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) is conducting a recruitment exercise IS NOT TRUE and the public should disregard it in its entirety.

“Whenever NNPC decides to conduct a recruitment exercise, it will announce this to the public through authentic public communication channels, including the NNPC’s website.

”Once again, the NNPC is not recruiting,” the official statement added noted.

Meanwhile, popular activist, Deji Adeyanju, has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari over the appointment of Senator Ifeanyi Ararume as the chairman of the Board, Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited.

Naija News reports that President Buhari on Sunday, September 19, approved the incorporation of the NNPC.

In a statement made available to newsmen by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, the President approved also the appointment of the Board and Management of the NNPC Limited.

Senator Ifeanyi Ararume was appointed as Chairman and the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), while Mele Kyari was appointed as Chief Executive Officer.

Naija News reports that each of the six geo-political zones in the country also has a representative on the board and all the appointments take effect from the date of the company’s incorporation.

Reacting to the development in a post on Wednesday, Adeyanju described Ararume’s appointment as a travesty.

The Convener of Concerned Nigerians said he believes the All Progressive Congress has more qualified and experienced people in the oil and gas industry who could have been given the appointment.

Adeyanju pointed out that Ararume is inexperienced in the industry dealings and hence not fit for the appointment.
