Mele Kyari, the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has asked newly recruited Graduate Trainees (GTs) to work with other NNPC staffers in building the corporation to become the National Oil Company (NOC) of choice, urging them to go the extra mile to achieve extraordinary results.

Kyari said this during a virtual platform session with the 1,050 graduate trainees that were newly recruited by the NNPC as part of their onboarding programme.

The Federal Government’s COVID-19 guidelines limit physical contact, forcing the NNPC to hold an unprecedented virtual session.

Kyari asked the newly recruited employees of the corporation to come up with out-of-the-box ideas and help the NNPC deliver on its mandate of crude oil exploration, refining, marketing, supplying and distribution of petroleum products as a key enabler of the national economy.

“This is a company you will love to work for. But more than that, you will stay here and build a very fulfilling career. I have been around here for 29 years, and I have enjoyed every moment of it,” Kyari said.

He assured new recruits of the company’s full support, describing them as excellent minds that represent the future of the NNPC. He also added that the corporation believed in promoting gender equality.

“From top to down of the corporation, gender inclusiveness is reflected”, said Kyari. He urged the newly employed staff to uphold the NNPC’s core values of Respect for the Individual, Integrity, Transparency, Accountability and Professional Excellence, assuring that the corporation was committed to their career growth and development.

The 1,050 graduate trainees recently recruited by NNPC assumed duty virtually on Monday 4th May, 2020, in line with the federal government’s COVID-19 pandemic regulations and restrictions.
