American Witches Plans To Cause Trump Re-Election Failure

On Saturday, many little girls and even grown women around the country will dress up as witches for Halloween.

The Group Managing Director of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Malam Mele Kyari, says the corporation has become an Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) supporting company.

Kyari announced this on his twitter account @MKKYARI on Tuesday.

“With this development, the corporation has joined a group of over 65 extractive companies, state-owned enterprises (SOEs), commodity traders, financial institutions and industry partners committed to observing EITI’s supporting company expectations.

“Becoming an EITI supporting company aligns with NNPC’s corporate vision and principles of transparency, accountability and performance excellence.

“Our partnership with Nigeria Extractive industry Transparency Initiative (NEITI) and EITI strengthens our commitment towards commodity trading transparency, contract transparency and systematic disclosure of revenues and payments.

“We are on a journey towards greater transparency and look forward to deepening our collaboration with EITI to further this work,” he said.

Commenting on the development, the EITI Board Chair, Hon. Helen Clark, welcomed the commitment of NNPC to EITI.

“NNPC plays a vital role in Nigeria’s economy. Joining the EITI as a supporting company is a welcome step in NNPC’s journey toward achieving greater transparency.

“This will help to ensure that Nigerians benefit from their natural resource wealth.” she said.

Zainab Ahmed, Nigeria’s Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning and former EITI Board member, also emphasised the importance of ensuring that natural resource wealth contributes to sustainable development.

“Increased transparency of Nigeria’s national oil company revenues is contributing to improvements in our country’s domestic resource mobilisation efforts,” she added

Also, NEITI Executive Secretary, Waziri Adio, commended NNPC’s move to support EITI.

“NNPC joining EITI as a supporting company is a major inflection point in the quest for transparency —- for the company, for Nigeria’s oil and gas sector, and for the country as a whole.

“This is so given how critical NNPC is to the sector and to the country. NEITI welcomes this bold commitment.

“We will continue to work and walk with NNPC to translate its espoused commitments to transparency and accountability into concrete and sustained actions and results,” he said.

Adio noted that becoming an EITI supporting company could help state-owned companies make progress on the journey to transparency

“A recent example is Qatar Petroleum, which has been an EITI supporting company since October 2019 and has now published its annual and sustainability plans for the first time,” he added.

Established in 1977, NNPC has grown to become the largest asset holder across Nigeria’s oil and gas industry value chain.

Traditionally an oil and gas entity, it is transitioning towards becoming an integrated energy company with an interest in power generation and transmission.
