President Muhammadu Buhari will on July 18, 2022, unveil the new Nigerian National Petroleum Company Ltd (NNPC Ltd.).
Malam Mele Kyari, Chief Executive Officer of the company, said this on Tuesday while receiving the CEO of the Year 2021 Award of the Leadership Newspapers Group in Abuja.
The Leadership Annual Conference and Awards also saw Vice President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo and World Trade Organisation (WTO) Director-General, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, receive the Leadership Person of the Year Awards.
Speaking virtually from Luanda, Angola where he is attending the meeting of African Petroleum Conference (CAPDE VIII), Kyari expressed “profound appreciation” toward the award.
He thanked the Leadership Newspapers Group for recognising the efforts of the NNPC, adding that such recognition was a challenge to do more.
