The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation has urged the National Association of Nigerian Students, (NANS), to face their studies and pass their examinations before seeking employment with the Corporation.
Speaking with newsmen in Abuja yesterday, the NNPC Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Ndu Ughamadu, was reacting to the 72-hour ultimatum issued by NANS, which accused the Corporation of discrimination in its recruitment process.
The association further gave the Corporation a 72-hour ultimatum to withdraw all alleged anti-poor and anti-masses conditions in the employment criteria or it would embark on a protest.
Ughamadu said NANS should focus on their studies in order to graduate with good results.
The Corporation had opened a recruitment portal from March 13 to March 26 and has started short-listing qualified candidates.
