The newly appointed Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mele Kyari, has pledged closer ties with the Nigerian Governors’ Forum to ensure the growth of the economy.
While meeting with the NGF delegation in his office, Mr Kyari explained that the partnership will also grow renewable energy and generate revenue for the country.
“What is important to Nigerians are two things – fuel supply and absence of queues in fuel stations. And the second part of this is very critical. How much money we deliver from our transactions into the federation account.
“These two elements are critical and they are very important for the well being of this country,” he said.
The NNPC boss also assured the governors that the financials and operations of the corporation would continue to be communicated to them while ensuring fiscal feasibility for the states in consonance with the medium-term expenditure framework.
