NP Sierra Leone ‘Local Content Policy Is Paramount’


    By Ranger

    As a true Sierra Leonean company NP-SL has so far maintained strict adherence to the Local Content Policy always ensuring that the maximum number of its staff are indigenes. What this actually means is that it is reducing poverty levels of our own brothers and sisters through access to employment opportunities.

    The National Petroleum Sierra Leone Limited, NP (SL-Ltd) is working round the clock to give its numerous customers the best of products as well as taking stock of them in what has been dubbed “Know Your Customer Better”  while it continues to engage oil producing companies to ensure adequate supply of petroleum products is readily available in the country.  The pro-active stance of the company has made it possible for stocks to be available and last over periods of time thereby averting shortages.


    The original shareholders were 35 ordinary Sierra Leoneans that bought shares from the Government of Sierra Leone out of their end of service benefits to establish what today is known as NP-SL.

    Contrary to propaganda in the past that the company is owned by politicians with vested interests, investigations have proven otherwise that NP-SL is a 100% privately, indigenously-owned company. Of importance is the fact that the company has weathered various storms that could have dwarfed it or left it liquidated if it were not for the therapeutic  interventions and initiatives of the past and current Managements of the company that have been  injecting sanity which has kept it upright and on the right course.

    Today, many members of the company are benefiting from various trainings acquiring requisite skills that they would find useful to carry out certain tasks in delivering value for money. NP-SL stands tall amongst a number of companies upholding the Local Content Policy.

    Its intrinsic national posture runs through and it is a sine qua-non to overall national development. With such compliance rate, it behooves other stakeholders to follow NP’s good example to positively impact on the employment rate in the country.

    Know Your Customer (KYC) policy of NP stands No. 1 because of confirmation by many customers who have made it clear that the way and manner they are being offered services by NP is second to none in the country.

    For a very long time now NP-SL is No. 1 on the KYC and this has earned the company accolades because of its drive to optimize customer satisfaction. Its modern calibrated pumping machines installed at various stations are reliable, accurate and dependable. Many users say there is no more cheating or complaints of half pumping bottles. Consequently, a new sense of confidence is building up and customers are of the view that this is making the company more transparent.

    Some of its best products like NP Gas used by many homes has proven to be comparatively environmentally friendlier and safe. It is designed in various sizes and sold at NP Filling, all going at affordable prices. NP Smart Card has become trending and many have attested that it is indeed very useful. It has helped reduce queues. Customers talk highly about it.

    On taxation, NP has proven that if the National Revenue Authority (NRA) is to reach its target then it needs a partner like NP. The company remains undoubtedly one of the biggest tax compliant institutions in the country.

    Whatever way one may look at it the operations of NP-SL Ltd had brought and still continue to bring positive outcomes for individuals, private as well as public institutions. NP has demonstrated that it is a true partner to development.
