The United States government has promised to support the ongoing reforms of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, adding that it is ready to work with the corporation’s new management in achieving the federal government’s reform agenda in the oil and gas industry.

The US Ambassador to Nigeria, James Entwistle, stated this at a courtesy call on the Group Managing Director, GMD, of the NNPC, Dr Ibe Kachikwu, at the NNPC Towers in Abuja.

The US envoy’s promise which was contained in a statement issued on Thursday August 20, by the corporation’s spokesman, Ohi Alegbe, added that the US was willing to provide all necessary support to the new NNPC management to enable it to realise its set goals and objectives. 

Entwistle, who noted that though the job of the GMD of NNPC is about the most challenging job in Nigeria, said: “The US is convinced that Kachikwu has the skills, training and requisite experience to lead the oil and gas industry in Nigeria towards the path of growth and sustainable development.”
