NNPC reiterates commitment to renewable energy project

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has reiterated commitment to its partnership with the Government of Kebbi on renewable energy projects.

The NNPC Group Managing Director, Mele Kyari, disclosed this in a statement by the corporation’s Spokesman, Dr Kennie Obateru, in Abuja on Thursday.

Kyari spoke when he received the Governor of Kebbi, Sen. Atiku Bagudu, who paid him a courtesy visit in Abuja.

He noted that the corporation remained committed with the partnership for the production of biofuels, adding that the project was viable and in tandem with the global transition to renewable energy.
