NNPC to tackle pipeline vandalism with security advisory council

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has outlined plans to establish a security advisory council aimed at bringing a lasting solution to the perennial problem of pipeline vandalism and sundry security challenges bedeviling the oil and gas industry.
Speaking during a visit to NNPC by the management of Media Trust Limited, the Group Managing Director of NNPC, Dr. Maikanti Baru, said there was need to evolve new measures to bring an end to pipeline vandalism which is a major threat to the nation’s economy.
Dr Baru said the security advisory council would involve critical stakeholders which include security agencies, Niger Delta leaders, IOCs which would address all security and host community agitations.
“We want to passionately appeal to those behind indiscriminate acts of infrastructure vandalism to put an end forthwith to these despicable acts which are a great threat to the economy, the eco-system and energy security of the country,” Dr Baru stated.
Speaking earlier, the Chairman of the Board of Directors, Media Trust Limited, Malam Kabir Yusuf, stated that the visit was to strengthen the existing cordial relationship between the two organisations and to also thank the NNPC management for the good works it was doing for the country.
“We are here as stakeholders in the media and the economy to say that we appreciate the work you are doing and to also have the opportunity to have more insight into these works and to communicate it to the public,” Malam Yusuf said.
