In a bid to bring openness to one of Nigeria’s most secretive organisations, the NNPC is televising the opening bid of the NNPC Offshore Processing Agreement (OPA).
The bid is being televised live on the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) this morning and an opening 20 bids have been heard.
The Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, since taking over, has spoken of the need to demystify the corporation and improve accountability.
He spoke at the opening of the bid today and said “televising the opening bids of the OPA sends the right kind of message on where we are headed as a corporation.
We hope to come up with globally recognized companies with real solid investments in the country and Access to refineries”
