    kill NNPC before NNPC kills us. With the outrageous losses incurred by this monster of a corporation, its about time that the workers are paid according to what they produce. Over 100 million nigerians cannot be living below the poverty line while such wastes in the public service are allowed to go on. its time for the government to divest some of its stake in the NNPC subsidiaries and allow the private sector bring in efficiency and a ” profit mentality” .
