NNPC Slams Omo-Agege on alleged relocation of NGC headquarters

153

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) on Sunday said that it has no plan to relocate the headquarters of its subsidiary, Nigerian Gas Company (NGC) from its present location in Delta State to somewhere outside the region.

The state oil firm condemned statements by the Deputy President of the Senate, Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege where he reportedly said that NNPC is planning to relocate NGC headquarters from the Niger Delta region.

The NNPC said the alleged statement from the Senator is false and misleading.

” While calling on the NGC host communities and other stakeholders to disregard the relocation tale which it described as totally false, the Corporation maintained that the Deputy President of the Senate may have either been misinformed or was quoted out of context noting that the subject of relocation of NGC was never on the table for deliberation by the NNPC management.

In a press release issued by its Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Ndu Ughamadu described as unfortunate statement credited to  the Deputy President of the Senate, Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege.

The Corporation assured that the focus of the current NNPC management under the headship of Mallam Mele Kyari is to ensure harmonious relationship with stakeholders and host communities in such a way as to entrench a win-win scenario for all concerned.

“I am sure the message has been sent that they cannot move; they must remain. And for those who have left, they must give a serious thought to relocating back to the Niger Delta, Omo-Agege said over the week-end.
