NNPC CMS lauded for impact on members, commissions office complex


 The management of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has commended the executives of the NNPC Co-operative Multipurpose Society (CMS), Lagos for their commitment towards ensuring financial and social benefits for the Society’s members.

Andrew Yakubu, group managing director, NNPC, who described the impact made on members as immeasurable, stated that the Society had assisted a good number of staff in building their own houses, among other benefits.

“Management has become increasingly interested in the cooperative society because of its financial and social benefits, and will continue to lend its support whenever possible,” he said. Yakubu, who was represented by James Adebola, zonal manager, Lagos, NNPC at the commissioning of the Society’s office complex last week, commended the executives for “being bold, thoughtful and dogged in completing the project,” which would ensure better service delivery to members, adding that they should ”put in place a maintenance programme for the state-of-the-art office complex”.

Joseph Ojeyemi, president, NNPC CMS, Lagos, said the commissioning was a proof of the fulfillment of their mandate to create conducive environment for the daily operations of the Society and boost the morale of the staff.

He said: “In August 2011, when I and my team were sworn as the management committee members, I promised that we would inject more life into the Society and reposition it to reach an enviable height that our members would be proud of and derive more sense of belonging.”
