In a bid to transform and reposition the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) into a world-class company of excellent service, the corporation’s Group Managing Director, Mallam Mele Kyari, has asked staff to be resourceful and key into his agenda to re-engineer the company — Transparency, Accountability and Performance Excellence (TAPE).
He said the staff members should deploy pragmatic solutions in their daily official duties to make the National Oil Company result-oriented and a paradigm of a performing public enterprise.
Kyari gave the charge at the graduation and send forth of Batch 085 of the corporation’s Chief Officers Management Development Programme (COMDP) in Abuja on Friday contained in a statement by the Mr Ndu Ughamadu, NNPC’s Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division.

Kyari, apparently impressed by the excellent performance of the participants, said the NNPC was undergoing a transformation that was geared towards making it to live up its responsibilities as a National Oil Company and urged them to support his management to deliver on its agenda.
The corporation, the GMD said under his watch, would focus on TAPE, noting the road may be rough but his management was determined to take the nation’s oil and gas industry to the next level.
Kyari noted that the NNPC was endowed with the best workforce that any establishment in the country can boast of, stressing that with the rich human resource base, the corporation would be transformed into a renowned global company of choice and excellence.
Earlier in her remarks, the Group General Manager, Group Human Resources, Mrs Ladipo Oyeyemi, represented by Mr John Ogbe, felicitated with the graduands and urged them to use the knowledge they have acquired to keep the corporation afloat.
