Forum Hails Tinubu Over Kyari's Retention As GCEO NNPCL


The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) has enthusiastically welcomed the reappointment of Mallam Mele Kolo Kyari as the Group Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) by President Bola Tinubu. This decision, AYCF said, is a landmark move that signals continuity and stability in the nation's oil sector.

The AYCF in a statement by its President General Yerima Shettima noted that as part of a larger reshuffle, President Tinubu has unveiled a new board and management team for the NNPCL, effective December 1, 2023. 

"The retention of Mallam Mele Kolo Kyari has defied expectations and put to shame detractors who had been anticipating his replacement after serving for approximately four years under the Buhari Administration," Yerima Shettima said. 

He expressed satisfaction with President Tinubu's decision and highlighted the confidence that the current administration has in Mele Kyari. Shettima emphasized that Kyari's reappointment demonstrates the administration's belief in his ability to navigate the challenges of the global oil economy and lead the NNPCL to even greater heights.

He said the AYCF, a prominent youth organization that represents the interests of the Arewa region, recognizes the valuable contributions made by Mallam Mele Kolo Kyari during his previous term as the CEO of NNPCL. 

"His leadership, vision, and commitment have significantly enhanced the operations and performance of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited, making it an integral player in the global oil and gas sector," Shettima said. 

The AYCF applauds President Tinubu for making a decision that prioritizes continuity and stability in the nation's oil sector which is crucial for maintaining investor confidence, attracting foreign investments, and ensuring sustainable economic growth for Nigeria. Shettima then urged Kyari to continue his exemplary leadership and work collaboratively with the newly appointed board and management team to steer the NNPCL towards even greater achievements and pledged AYCF's support to the administration's efforts to transform Nigeria's oil sector and create opportunities for the Arewa region's youth.

AYCF is a leading youth organization in Nigeria, representing the interests of the Arewa region, and is committed to promoting peace, unity, and socio-economic development in the region through advocacy, capacity-building programs, and constructive engagement with relevant stakeholders.
