NNPC Drops 500 from its Workforce for Failing Promotion Test

No fewer than 500 employees are about to be dropped from the payroll of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) for reportedly failing to scale through a mandatory personnel assessment and promotion examinations the corporation recently conducted, THISDAY has gathered.

Very reliable sources within the state oil company said the issue was already causing disquiet in the corporation.

They said this could lead to disruption of NNPC operations following threats by workers’ unions to resist the alleged sack of the 500 workers.

Sources close to the development told THISDAY that trouble started when the corporation conducted the promotional examinations and about 500 of its staff could not pass it.

The 500 are reportedly not part of the workers’ unions – the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) and Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN).
