He said he would continue with the good works executed by his predecessor to take the company to the next level.

“We will reposition and we will make NNPC a  global company of excellence.

“As part of the leadership of the company before now, there are good works that my predecessor has done during his tenure and we will continue from there, ” he said.

The new NNPC boss also assured that the country’ s refineries would be revamped to ensure that  incessant fuel scarcity was curtailed.

“We will sustain and build on the progress we met on ground and also to ensure that we align completely with the vision of Mr President to ensure that there is peace in the Niger Delta region.

“To also ensure that petroleum supply is sustained in such a way that Nigerians do not cry any more over fuel issues in the country, ” he said.

In his response, Mustapha assured them of good working relationship in order to have a stable government in the next four years.

According to the SGF, in all the interactions I have had with the outgoing GMD of NNPC, the transition process in itself attest to the fact that we will have stability in the  NNPC industry.
