The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has recruited 1,050 Graduate Trainees as part of its massive recruitment drive.
The NNPC opened applications for places in March 2019, and almost a year after, has announced the recruitment of graduates into the corporation.
”We are pleased to announce the successful completion of the #NNPC 2019/2020 recruitment exercise for graduate trainees (GTs),” a statement released on Friday read.
“Consequently, we have commenced the issuance of provisional offers of employment to 1,050 graduate trainee candidates.
“In delivering this important assignment, we have ensured that the outcome reflected national spread and that all statutory requirements are complied with.”
The corporation said its recruitment exercise will be a continuous one.
“The recruitment exercise in NNPC will be a continuous process and in this regard, the experienced hire (EH) component will be addressed in due course.
“In closing, we look forward to warmly receiving our new team members and working with them to build a corporation that all Nigerians will be proud of.”
Ndu Ughamadu, the corporation’s spokesman, had said the recruitment would cover engineering and administrative areas.
“We are going to recruit people from different engineering fields, especially fresh graduates and equally in the administrative areas,” he said at the time.
He also explained that the recruitment would be in three categories; fresh graduates, senior officers/ supervisory cadre and managerial cadre.
Meanwhile, Nigerians have revealed their happiness at the transparency shown by the NNPC in its recruitment with many individuals revealing they were picked or know someone that was picked with no form of external influence.

If truly the NNPC recruitment is actually credible as tweeps put it. Then I must commend the hierarchy of the government organization for being fair. It should be so though.
