Coalition Defends NNPCL Amid Unfounded Criticism, Upholds Good Governance

by Oluwatosin Racheal Alabi

The Coalition for Good Governance and Open Leadership in Nigeria, a notable non-governmental organization, staunchly defended the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Ltd (NNPCL) against unfounded criticisms, as reported by The Sun.

The coalition, dedicated to transparent leadership, denounced the baseless accusations targeting NNPCL’s management, urging continued transparency in supporting President Bola Tinubu’s oil sector reforms.

In a press briefing in Lagos, the pro-transparency group highlighted a disturbing trend. “Certain individuals, under the guise of investigators and civic leaders, have launched a relentless defamation campaign against NNPCL,” they revealed.

This revelation came amid the coalition’s independent inquiry into NNPCL’s actions surrounding fuel subsidy removals, indicating ulterior motives behind the attacks.

The coalition’s investigation identified the Conference of Nigeria Political Party (CNPP) as the source of slander against NNPCL’s CEO, Mr. Mele Kyari, driven by a so-called billionaire’s agenda. “As advocates of good governance, we emphasize thorough investigation of wrongdoing allegations.

However, using these as political ammunition for personal agendas threatens NNPCL’s stability,” the group warned, condemning the misuse of corruption charges as political weaponry.

Emphasizing the necessity of impartiality, the organization reminded the public that allegations against officials, especially those at NNPCL’s helm, require a just approach through proper legal channels.

They noted the National Assembly’s comprehensive probe into these claims, aimed at Mr. Kyari’s ousting, and advocated for responsible, ethical actions from all stakeholders.

The coalition’s firm stance serves as a reminder of the gravity of unfounded allegations, underscoring the importance of integrity and due process in governance.
