Petroleum Industry Act raises shareholders’ expectations from NNPC for more opportunities, revenue – Kyari

*NNPC to be the largest and most capitalised company in Africa

MINA Blog- As the Federal Government of Nigeria commenced full implementation of the Petroleum Industry Act (PIA) in earnest, the new legislation has been tipped to provide business opportunities that will enable the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC) earn more revenue for the country.

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the company, Mallam Mele Kyari while addressing staff in a townhall meeting at the weekend said the PIA had put “all money-making options on the table; it is up to us to take advantage of it”.

Highlighting the significance of the PIA to the NNPC and by extension the Nigerian economy, Mallam Kyari said the new legislation has raised shareholders’ expectations on the company, even as it has given it a wide room to make progress.

He said as a result of the new legislation, NNPC Ltd would not only shed some of its toxic liabilities but will be the largest and most capitalised company in the whole of Africa and, potentially, the most profitable on the entire continent.

The CEO charged employees of the organisation to ensure that the company becomes a commercially viable entity and a multi-billion-dollar company that will continuously deliver value to its shareholders–the over two hundred million Nigerians.
