NNPC Commences Diversification into Health Sector

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has raised the stake in its commitment to diversify into the health sector in line with the Corporation’s stand to stay afloat as a commercially viable entity.

The Group Managing Director of the Corporation, Dr. Maikanti Baru, made this known today in Abuja while inaugurating the Boards of the NNPC Medical Services Ltd. (NMSL) and the NNPC Health Maintenance Organisation (HMO) Ltd.

“My vision is to make NNPC a renowned Health Medical Services (HMS) provider globally. In the nearby future, we are committed to making our medical facilities a reference point for the provision of world-class health medical services in Africa and beyond,” Dr. Baru stated.

Following the recent restructuring of the NNPC, its Group Medical Services was realigned as a new venture non-core business entity, charged with the responsibility of creating new medical businesses that will generate revenue for the Corporation.

As at today, the NNPC Medical Services Division boasts of 52 clinics and hospitals spread across the Corporation’s various locations across the country, providing services to staff and their family members.

The aim now, according to the GMD, is to open up these medical facilities to other oil and gas organisations as well as other interested third party consumers for profitability.

Dr. Baru charged the Board members to provide the necessary direction to medical service delivery in NNPC in line with global best standards.

“It is going to be a new terrain for all of you. You must take advantage of the latest and most efficient technological advancement in healthcare service delivery,” Dr. Baru told the Board members.

While urging the two boards to “carve a niche” for the NNPC Medical Services as a specialized medical service provider such as “Burns and Trauma Centre”, he also called on them to collaborate with the best partners as it is very critical towards service delivery.

He further charged the two boards to work with synergy, without at the same time compromising their respective independence, stressing that “your job comes with a lot of responsibility and you must prove yourselves on this critical assignment.”

Earlier in his remarks, the COO Ventures who is also the Board Chairman of the two organisations, Dr. Babatunde Victor Adeniran said that with this development, the NNPC was taking advantage of the new opportunities in the nation’s health sector.

“With this development, the existing NNPC Hospitals will compete for clients with other top class hospitals in locations where they operate hence quality of service would be improved,” Adeniran stated.

Aside Dr. Adeniran who chairs the Boards of the NNPC Medical Services Ltd (NMSL) and the NNPC Health Maintenance Organisation (HMO) Ltd, there are also seven (7) members for each of the boards, which are expected to commence work immediately.

  5. Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode on Monday said his administration has so far
    injected over 1,000 additional housing units into the State and the schemes are now
    ready for occupation by interested residents.

    Governor Ambode, who stated this during an extensive inspection tour of ongoing projects in the Eastern axis of
    the State, said the official flag off of the allocation of
    the housing units would commence on December 9, 2016, while interested residents of the State need not know anybody before applying.

    At the Sir Micheal Otedeola Housing Estate in Odoragunshin, Epe, Governor
    Ambode was briefed by the State’s Commissioner for Housing, Mr Gbolahan Lawal, who
    said the estate was part of the schemes earmarked for the rent-to-own policy of the State Government.

    Lawal said the 336 Housing units comprised of 180 units
    of room and parlour; 90 units of one bedroom apartment and 80 units of two
    bedroom apartment.
    He said 20 percent of the entire units had equally been earmarked for rental housing, adding that
    the social welfarism policy of the present administration in the face of the current economic downturn necessitated the need for the rent-to-own policy.

    He added that as part of the people-friendly gesture of the Akinwunmi Ambode administration, the
    prices of the units have been reduced thus the two bedroom which was hitherto N7.2million has been reduced to
    N3.5 million, while the one bedroom which was N4.3 million has been reduced to N2.3 million. The room and parlour unit has also been reduced
    to N1.5 million.
    Responding, Governor Ambode said due to the economic recession and as a responsive government, his administration felt
    the great need to review the housing policies which have always existed in the State, saying that such was
    what brought about the new policies to make housing affordable to Lagosians.

    He said: “When you consider the economic recession and then the inability of our people to actually process mortgage, we think it is time for government to be more responsive and that is why we are adjusting the mortgage scheme to rent-to-own policy.
    “We think it is better that people can just come in and pay one month rent and continue to pay their rent on a monthly basis.
    These housing units are for the people and we want the people to have access to
    them.
    “If Lagosians are interested in owning, they don’t need to pay any down payment of mortgage, they should just approach us and apply. They don’t need to know anybody also. It will be open to everybody. This is more about the people. As we speak now, we have over a thousand units that are going up for rentage and as we proceed, we will add additional units some in partnership with the private sector.
    “We are going to have new schemes coming up in Ajegunle,
    Badagry, Alimosho and other areas. The whole essence is to increase the
    purchasing power of Lagosians,” Governor Ambode said.
    At the inspection of the expansion of network of roads in Epe, the State’s Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Engr Ganiyu Johnson briefed the Governor on the various road projects, saying that they were aimed at developing the Eastern axis of the State.
    He said the network of roads in Epe consist of three segments. Segment one is Lagos Road which starts from Oke Osho to Femi Agbalajobi Junction. Segment two is from Femi Agbalajobi to Oloja Estate, while the third segment is the network of roads within Oloja Estate.
    Johnson added that the Phase two of the project started from Femi Agbalajobi to Majoda, the boundary of Lagos and Ogun State and from Oke Osho to Poka Road.
    While responding, Governor Ambode expressed satisfaction with the level of work done so far, saying there had been improvement from the last time he inspected the projects.
    He said: “We decided to open up this axis of the
    State to complement what we are doing at the Export Free Trade Zone and also all the things that are coming
    up at the Ibeju Lekki axis. We believe strongly that by opening up this road to the boundary of
    Ogun State, we would have brought accelerated development to the Eastern axis of
    Lagos. We want to ensure that even as we plan to
    put an Airport in the East axis, it is also important that
    we add a road network that can complement all the efforts we are trying
    to put up at the Lekki Free Trade Zone,” he said.
    Besides, Governor Ambode directed the contractor handling the projects to work 24/7 to ensure the completion of Phase one before May 2017, and ordered that the second phase of the road network to Mojada should commence in January, as well as the connecting roads between Oke Osho and Poka axis.
    The Governor also inspected the 20 Units Government Chalet in Epe which is currently being upgraded to 70 units with modern lawn tennis court, swimming pool, a five-aside football field, among others.
