The President also appointed alongside Kyari, seven new Chief Operating Officers to the corporation, according to a release by the NNPC Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs, Mr. Ndu Ughamadu today.

The newly appointed Chief Operating Officers are:

6.    Engr. Adeyemi Adetunji (South West) – Chief Operating Officer, Downstream

7.    Mr. Farouk Garba Said (North West) – Chief Operating Officer, Corporate Services.

Ughamadu noted that the new GMD and the others appointed would work alongside the existing officers in the same position until 7th of July 2019.

“President Muhammadu Buhari has directed that the New GMD and the newly appointed COOs work with the current occupiers of the various offices till 7th July 2019 towards a smooth transition on 8th July 2019 when their appointments would take effect to ensure a smooth transition.
