NNPC Shake Up Affects 55 Top Executives...

The Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) says it has reshuffled the management staff of some units of the corporation.

In a statement released on Tuesday, Ndu Ughamadu, NNPC spokesman, said 55 management staff were affected in the exercise.

Ughamadu said before the announcement was made public, Maikanti Baru, group managing director of the NNPC, told the staff that the new appointments would not only help to position the corporation for the challenges ahead but would help fill the gaps created due to statutory retirements of staff.

“Under the new arrangement, Roland Ewubare, formerly MD of the Integrated Data Services Limited, IDSL moves to the National Petroleum Investment Management Services, NAPIMS as the new group general manager while Diepriye Tariah, former GGM and senior technical assistant to the NNPC GMD takes over from Ewubare as MD of IDSL,” he said.

“Malami Shehu, executive director operations, of the Kaduna Refining and Petrochemical Company, KRPC, was appointed managing director of the Port Harcourt Refining Company, PHRC while Adewale Ladenegan, former MD of the Warri Refining and Petrochemical Company, WRPC was moved to KRPC to assume duty as MD.

“In the same vein, Muhammed Abah, until recently, the executive director operations of WRPC succeeds Ladenegan as MD of Warri Refinery.

“With the retirement of Alh. Farouk Ahmed as the MD of the Nigerian Products Marketing Company, (NPMC), Umar Ajiya, former GGM in charge of Corporate Planning and Strategy, (CP&S) now assumes duty as MD of NPMC while Bala Wunti, former, general manager, Downstream, GMD’s Office takes charge as GGM CP&S.

“Other changes include: Usman Yusuf who takes over as GGM/STA to the GMD, Adeyemi Adetunji confirmed as MD NNPC Retail alongside Dr. Bola Afolabi who now functions as GGM in charge of Research and Development Division of the Corporation.

“Also on the list is Mrs. Ahmadu-Katagum appointed GGM (Shipping) in the Downstream Autonomous Business Unit while Kallamu Abdullahi takes over as the GGM in charge of the Renewable Energy Division in the Downstream ABU.

“Shaibu Musa was promoted MD of the NNPC medical services limited while Ibrahim Birma is the new GGM in charge of the corporation’s audit division now renamed governance, risk and compliance division.”

  1. Pay me half of what you payed them last Sir. I'll come to work 4am and leave 9pm.



  2. Wideawake...I sight you!

    Probably what all the principalities in NNPC today said, before they were employed!!!

  3. Barracudianusaurusunamon - Maxfusion, you just made my morning, LOL. "principalities" indeed, their usual propaganda and promises and yet we see little or nothing. I very much agree with you on your stand.



  4. NNPC shaking of staff, SMH but the people at the top that need to be retired are still there and their tenure extended by the GMD for one year against the regulations of NNPC.
    They don't want others to grow and a particular ethic group is holding NNPC hostage. SMH at the GMD
