The United States government has given its backing to the ongoing reforms of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), and has pledged its readiness to work with the corporation’s new management in achieving the federal government’s reform agenda in the oil and gas industry.
This position was made known yesterday by the US Ambassador to Nigeria, James Entwistle, while speaking during a courtesy call on the group managing director (GMD) of the NNPC, Dr Ibe Kachikwu, at the NNPC Towers in Abuja.
According to a statement issued yesterday by the corporation’s spokesman, Ohi Alegbe, Entwistle disclosed that the US is willing to provide all necessary support to the new NNPC management to enable it to realise its set goals and objectives for the industry.
The envoy who noted that though the job of the GMD of NNPC is about the most challenging job in Nigeria, said,
“The US is convinced that Kachikwu has the skills, training and requisite experience to lead the oil and gas industry in Nigeria towards the path of growth and sustainable development.”
