Joint Northern Action Groups Reject Calls for Removing and Probing NNPCL Executives
The Joint Northern Action Groups have categorically rejected calls for removing and probing Mele Kolo Kyari, Ali Muhammad Zahra, and Mr Bala Wunti. The groups commended the outstanding leadership of NNPCL and urged Mele Kyari to continue driving the growth and development of the Nigerian petroleum industry.

FCT, Abuja - The Joint Northern Action Groups have categorically rejected calls for removing and probing Mele Kolo Kyari, Ali Muhammad Zahra, and Mr Bala Wunti.

The groups made their stance known at a press conference held in Abuja and attended by a Legit.ng correspondent.

The Northern Youth Advocacy for Good Governance Initiative and the Arewa Youth Forum have been behind the call to remove the NNPCL executives.

The group's spokesman, Comrade Abdulhameed Enaji, said:

''We would like to state categorically that this so-called protest is the handiwork of selfish individuals who are only interested in advancing their own interests, and not the interests of Nigerians.

''We reject these individuals in their entirety and call on all Nigerians to disregard their call for the sack of Mele Kyari.

''As patriotic Nigerians, we also commend the outstanding leadership of NNPCL and call on him to continue to do his best in driving the growth and development of the Nigerian petroleum industry.

''We call on Nigerians to remain vigilant and reject any attempt by selfish individuals to use the guise of civil society to advance their own interests."

During the press conference, Comrade Enaji highlighted accomplishments attributed to Mele Kyari's leadership at NNPCL.

They include environmental pollution reduction, black soot reduction, reduction in illegal crude oil sales, increased crude oil production, foreign reserves growth, job creation, and improved security.

Speaking to Legit.ng on the sidelines of the briefing, Comrade Enaji commended ''Kyari's outstanding leadership at NNPCL'', urging him to continue striving for the growth and development of the Nigerian petroleum industry.

He said:

''The so-called protest is the work of self-interested individuals, so we call upon all Nigerians to disregard the call for Mele Kyari's removal.

''Nigerians should be cautious of attempts by self-serving individuals to exploit civil society as a facade for advancing their interests.

''The achievements and contributions of Mele Kyari and his team at NNPCL have benefited the Nigerian petroleum sector.''

In another development, an appeal has been made to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to extend his anti-corruption campaign to top government officials in the immediate past administration.

The appeal also urged Tinubu to investigate some public office holders currently serving in his administration.

Timi Frank, a former spokesperson of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), issued this appeal on Tuesday, June 20.
