The Nigerian Liquefied Natural Gas Limited’s (NLNG) CEO, Tony Attah, and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s (EFCC) Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, met in Abuja to discuss collaborations on ensuring continuous transparency in NLNG’s operations, World Stage reported.
Attah stated that NLNG had placed premium on transparency. He added: “we hold the EFCC in high esteem, as it is the only hope of Nigeria in the area of transparency. We will continue to seek your assistance, especially when we are targeted by miscreants. We also appreciate your efforts in redeeming the image of Nigeria in the international community,” according to Nigeria Television Authority.
Attah comments came during a courtesy visit to EFCC’s offices in mid-October. He was accompanied by NLNG’s Deputy Manager Director, Sadiq Mai-bornu, the company’s General Manager of External Affairs, Kudo Eresia-Eke, Manager of Government Relations, Salem Sallam, and Ag.Manager of Corporate Security Services, Lukman Longe.
This comes as tension grew between Nogeria’s federal government and the country’s Trade Union Congress (TUC) and the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association (PENGASSAN), which opposed the sale of NLNG’s assets in order to revive Nigeria’s ailing economy.
