In a press statement on Saturday in Abuja the converner of the group, Sunday Attah said anybody calling for Male’s removal is simply an enemy of progress and unpatriotic.

Setting the records straight, Attah pointed out that since Kyari came into office, NNPCL have recorded N287 billion profit in 2020, N674 million in 2021 and minimized the NNPCL losses from N803 billion to as low as N1.5 million.

PIA
Transformation of the NNPC to NNPCL
His fight against pipelines vandalisation
4.His fight against Crude Oil theft

“If you look at the expertise, professionalism and pedigree of Mele Kyari, everyone will agree with me that he was a right peg in a round hole. He is a process-minded person and that is what these sponsors of this mischief story don’t want.

“Just yesterday the 4th of August 2023 the president performed the ground-breaking ceremony and officially kicked off the construction of the 1,350mw Gwagwalada Independent Power Plant (GIPP) in Abuja, with the first phase expected to comprise 350mw.

Attah said, “Oil cabals and those who don’t want anything good for Nigeria has resorted to maligning him in some section of the Media because of his unwavering stance on due process, probity and best practices in the conduct of the company’s businesses.
