More than 1,000 graduate trainees recently recruited by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation are to assume duty from Monday, May 4, 2020.
Kennie Obateru, NNPC’s group general manager, group public affairs division, disclosed this on Thursday in a statement issued in Abuja.
He said the trainees would assume duty first virtually, while the corporation would monitor the COVID -19 situation and the Federal Government’s directives to determine a date of physical assumption of duty.
Obateru said the option of virtual assumption of duty was necessitated by the need to comply with extant protocol on social distancing and reduced number of people in the workplace, among other measures that had been introduced by the government as a result of the pandemic.
He said the trainees had completed online documentation and would commence virtual onboarding by Monday.
The statement stated that the Group Managing Director, NNPC, Mele Kyari, was excited about the assumption of duty of the graduate trainees, as he noted that they were part of the succession plan to assure the corporation’s future.
Kyari congratulated the successful graduate trainees and said much was expected of them.
NNPC said the assumption of duty of the graduate trainees marked the successful completion of the 2019/2020 recruitment exercise.
