Group chief executive officer of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited Mele Kyari has urged Nigerians to refrain from issuing congratulatory messages on his reappointment.

President Bola Tinubu recently announced Kyari’s reappointment as chief executive of NNPC Limited.

In a statement issued on Wednesday by NNPC’s spokesman Olufemi Soneye, Kyari expressed gratitude to stakeholders and Nigerians for their enthusiasm regarding his reappointment.


He, however, expressed the need for commitment by all the stakeholders to driving revenue growth and fortifying resilience for the naira and the nation’s economy.

Kyari, who said that he viewed his reappointment as a renewed challenge, expressed his commitment to stabilising the oil industry and enhancing service delivery for increased revenue.

“I humbly appeal to stakeholders in the oil sector and fellow Nigerians to support the company under his leadership to ensure the success of its mandate.

“Consequently, I request all parties concerned to refrain from issuing congratulatory messages on his reappointment,” he said.
