NNPC May Employ Expatriates – Kachikwu

The Minister of State for Petroleum and Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Dr. Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu has said that expatriates would be
recruited into the corporation as part of the ongoing restructuring of the state-run oil company for efficiency and profitability, This Day reports.
Kachikwu noted that there was always an emotion about Nigerians being in charge of NNPC but insisted that the oil and gas industry was not where nationals just take charge alone, stressing that “it is an international business that requires international global best practice.”

He stated that despite the general clamour for Nigerians to be in-charge, there were certain positions in the NNPC that required the services of expatriates, adding that the corporation currently has no expatriates in its workforce. Kachikwu acknowledged that the NNPC’s salary structure would not be able to accommodate expatriates in its workforce but added that he would not mind going outside the system to pay the expatriates.
