 NNPC REORGANIZED, NOT UNBUNDLED – KACHIKWU INSISTS

NNPC-logoThe Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu on Wednesday insisted that the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation has not been unbundled.
He spoke with State House correspondents after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting at the State House, Abuja.
According to him, the Corporation is only being reorganized.
He said: “We have not unbundled NNPC. We had a press conference yesterday where I explained this.
“What we have simply done is reorganisation. We have five business entities focus on business: Upstream, Downstream, Refineries, Gas and Power that are there before.
“There is also Ventures that captures all our little companies that were not having proper stewardship. They are run by individuals who report to the GMD.
“The NNPC is still a whole. There is nothing new that has happened.
“I have tried to explain this and I am sure the NNPC workers are members of the family, they will understand. We are going to have a meeting, and they will be made to understand. Perhaps the engagement has not been good enough,” he said.
He added: “NNPC has not been unbundled in the sense of breaking up NNPC into distinct institutions.
“I am concerned. I don’t want the industry shut down. I am sure we are going to resolve the issues very soon,” he stated.
