NNPC Reforms: Coalition Tackles Sponsors of media Attacks on Kyari, Dikko A coalition of professionals from the Northern and Southern parts of the country have taken a swipe at "cowards sponsoring continuous media attacks designed to distract NNPC Group Managing Director, Mele Kyari and Portharcourt Refinery Managing Director, Ahmed Dikko. Convener of the coalition, Aminu Zakari noted that the group resolved to take a stand during their second quarter meeting in Kaduna at the weekend, "because the attack dogs of haters of the ongoing reforms at the NNPC are going beyond the boundaries of decency. "As Nigerian citizens, we feel duty bound to draw public attention to a calculated, coordinated and well-funded media agenda designed to purposely distract the NNPC management, including another committed public servant - Dikko - who has been leading the reforms at the level of Portharcourt refinery", the coalition noted. "We have been following what is obviously a well-funded media distraction against the no-nonsense NNPC GMD and his loyal lieutenants like Dikko of Portharcourt Refinery and we are confident this mischievous plot would be dead on arrival . Even though we are also doubly sure that the current GMD of NNPC and his team are so occupied with efforts to give the corporation their best shot and won't even have the time to respond to fake figures being bandied against the NNPC, we as volunteers won't fold our arms", the group stressed. Turning to what they described as "landmark achievements of the Corporation" the coalition described the funding by the NNPC for the successful discovery of oil in the North, the $2.8billion AKK Gas Pipeline Project; declaration of N287billion profit for the first-time in 44 years; the TAPE mantra; support for health and education dectors across Nigeria; reactivation of the half-dead Gas deal with Russia and OML ownership reforms as "enough to give unpatriotic elements sleepless nights. "It is expected that the courageous removal of subsidy that enabled NNPC cut avoidable waste and corruption in the system, an action that once led to threats to the life of a former Finance Minister - Okonjo Iweala - will make the subsidy promoters uncomfortable, because corruption always fight back The statement was jointly signed by Aminu Zakari for 'Arewa Legacies Assembly' and Joseph Aridi of Bayelsa "Patriots for New Nigeria', among a host of others.
