The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, has disengaged over 400 senior staff nationwide, with effect from today, Thursday, March 12, 2020.

A Vanguard report quoting sources in the NNPC said the disengagement affected mainly staff who were scheduled to retire between now and 2022, while it also engaged some staff and  promoted others, who are scheduled to resume Thursday.

The source added that the NNPC has also appointed Mr. Kehinde Obateru, as the new Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division.

Obateru, who who was until now, the spokesperson for the NNPC London office, would be the new spokesperson of the NNPC, replacing Mr. Ndu Ughamadu, who retired last September.

He would also be taking over from Mr. Samson Makoji, who had been the Acting Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division of the NNPC, since after the exit of Ughamadu.

The sources  added that Obateru would be replaced in the NNPC London office, by Mr. Gboyega Bello, who had been promoted, General Manager of the Group Public Affairs Division.


The sources also noted that there were a few promotions and redeployments among the top hierarchy of the corporation, while they alleged that some of the disengagements and redeployment were not justified.

However efforts to get the views of the outgoing spokesperson of the NNPC, Mr. Samson Makoji, did not yield any result, as he refused to answer calls and respond to a text message sent to his phone.
