The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) on Monday, said it did not exclude people living with disability in its ongoing recruitment process.

NAN reports that Mr Ndu Ughamadu, NNPC Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, disclosed this in an with the News Agency of (NAN), in Abuja, on Tuesday.

“We have a corporate policy here and we do employ many of the physically challenged persons in the corporation. We have one with us here at the corporate affairs division.

“We have them accommodated also in this ongoing recruitment and also under our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSO) we have help a lot of the physically challenged especially in the Niger Delta area,’’ he said.

Ughamadu further said that the Corporation had been fair to the group and would continue to do so even with the recruitment process.

Earlier, Mr Godstime Onyegbula, of the Physically Challenged Applicants said the group has been protesting to express non inclusion in the ongoing NNPC recruitment.

“We are here to fight for minimum of five per cent employment opportunity to be given to people living with disability as provided by law.

“We have written to NNPC several times making them to understand that in the ongoing recruitment we were not included.

“This is because in their form there is no provision to indicate the nature of disabled to be employed.

“Several times we have written to them, no response, sometimes when we come here, we will be embarrassed by the security men. Sometime, they will chase us always, now we have come in our numbers from the 36 states and FCT,’’ he said.

He added that it has become imperative for NNPC to include them as the president has signed into law the Disability Act.

He further noted that most of its member are graduates and some with Masters degrees and could do any form of with support of gadgets.

In a related development, another group led by the Civil Society Against Corruption (CSNAC), staged a protest at the NNPC towers, demanding the immediate revocation of Oil Prospecting License, OPL, 245 allocated to Malabu, which was later sold to Shell and Eni.

The protesters also called for the prosecution of individuals involved in the controversial deal.

Speaking on behalf of the protesters, National Coordinator, National Malabu Awareness Coalition, Mr Shina Odugbemi stated that six years ago, reports were rife that one of Nigeria’s richest oil field, OPL 245, was sold in shady circumstances.

He pointed out that the former Minister of Petroleum, Dan Etete, who was convicted for money laundering in France owned Malabu Oil and Gas adding that he has registered the company with a fictitious name of Kweku Amafegha.

He noted that half of 1.1 billion dollars paid to Malabu for the procurement was consummated through bribes to Nigeria politicians and intermediaries who helped to secure the controversial deal.

Odugbemi explained that some officials of the Federal Government acted as conduit for the fund after Shell and Eni raised fears over transferring the money directly to Malabu due to Etete’s conviction in France.

We don’t have the capacity to isolate all those who test positive for COVID-19 – SGF Boss Mustapha Boss Mustapha

Boss Mustapha, secretary to the government of the federation (SGF) has said that the country does not have enough infrastructure to isolate everyone who test positive for Coronavirus.

 

Mustapha who is the chairman of the presidential task force on COVID-19, said this during the daily briefing on Monday June 1.

 

The SGF who expressed hope of COVID-19 tests being taken closer to the communities following increased number of molecular laboratories across the country, said authorities would provide home management guidelines especially for those without symptoms.

 

Mustapha said;

 

“We have been able to interrupt the level of transmission and we can now situate the level of transmission within 20 local government areas that account for the total figure of 60% of 10, 107 that we have for today.

“What we need to do now is to apply a precision intervention process so that we can deal with the transmission at that level and those particular localities. Provide care for those that are infected and also put in place a home management guideline because very soon as the figure scales out, we would not be able to provide isolation for everybody that has tested positive.

“It’s not done anywhere. We lack the infrastructure, we lack the capacity to do that. It is not even advisable. What we have to do is to provide care at the home management level for those that are asymptomatic and cant dangerously transmit the virus.”
