The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) will strengthen 50 per cent of its workforce with proper knowledge in identifying and knowing fraud to combat corruption, Dr Maikanti Baru has said.
Baru said this on Tuesday in Abuja days ago.
”We will use the opportunity offered by the CFE to train at least 50 per cent of our workers on fraud examination.
”We do know that there are a lot of advantages in getting as many staff as possible trained in fraud examination,” he said.
“NNPC, under my leadership, has instituted what we call Governance, Risk and Compliance Division, which is very much in line with the mission of CFE.
”The division is not only looking at corruption in terms of naira and kobo, but also at the system itself.
“The new division will ensure that fraud does not manifest in our system, and if it does, it will be quickly nipped in the bud,” he said.
