He said, “The portal was opened today and I have received hundreds of inquiries whether it is correct or not,” he said in a statement.
“We are going to recruit people from different engineering fields, especially fresh graduates and equally in the administrative areas.”

He gave the recruitment portal address as https:/careers.nnpcgroup.com.
