Following the recent promotion exercise in NNPC, a new Executive Director Services (EDS), Mrs. Oyeyemi Ladipo was posted to NPDC to take over from Mr. Ishaya Timothy, who was also promoted to the Group General Manager, Human Resources, GGM HR and transferred to the Corporate Headquarters, Abuja.
On assumption of office, the Executive Director Services, Mrs. Oyeyemi Ladipo held an interactive session with staff of the Services Division at the canteen where she enjoined all to exhibit high levels of professionalism in the discharge of their duties.
She noted that NPDC has an enormous task ahead of it as the company is strategic to the growth of the NNPC. The EDS expressed her excitement at being part of the process of upholding the heritage, values and culture of NNPC.
Mrs. Oyeyemi Ladipo reminded staff that all are in NPDC for one purpose, which is profitability, adding that as individuals, we must lead ourselves first before contributing to the collective team. She further noted that team spirit and collaboration are keys to our success.
The EDS also said that reaching our goals requires individual excellence but we would not be competing against each other as the spirit of competition will not take us far. She reiterated that we can do and achieve so much without putting ourselves under undue pressure and stress.
Finally, Mrs Oyeyemi Ladipo added that to her the unpardonable sins would be not giving our best to our jobs, not caring about the quality of our output and not striving to get better at what we do.
Her speech drew a lot of intermittent applause from staff who were captivated by her elegance, style and eloquence. With this solid foundation, the EDS will surely bring out the best from all NPDC staff.
