“My daughter was among the 296,000 candidates we screened, we didn’t employ her” – NNPC GMD


Group Managing Director, NNPq :^ grew Yakubu, on Friday, explained that the rigorous process involved in the organisation’s recruitment exercise made it difficult for his daughter to get the job.

The GMD said this at the induction of new members of staff at the corporation’s Abuja headquarters.

He said only 595 of the 296, 376 candidates who applied for the NNPC jobs in 2010 were successful.

He added that the insistence on merit and transparency by the management of the corporation made the process to be rigorous.

Of the 296,376 applications received, Yakubu noted that 44,239 candidates were shortlisted for aptitude test.

He said, “The 2010 recruitment exercise which ultimately led to today’s induction ceremony stands as one of the most painstaking and transparent recruitment ever conducted in the history of the corporation.

“May I also add on a personal ground that my daughter was among the 296,000 candidates and she was not employed.”

The GMD pointed out that the successful candidates would be trained to drive the corporation to enable it to compete anywhere in the world.

He said, “I wish to, at this critical time, welcome you on board, especially as it is a time when NNPC is pursuing an aggressive growth plan in line with Mr. President’s transformation agenda.”
