State Petroleum Minister, Ibe Kachikwu, Technically Replaces Himself With A More Experienced Northerner In The Oil Sector

The Group General Manager, Crude Oil Marketing Division, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Mele Kyari, has been appointed as Nigeria’s National Representative to the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries, OPEC.

The NNPC in a statement on Sunday, by its Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Ndu Ughamadu, revealed that the appointment was made by Nigeria’s Head of Delegation to the OPEC Conference and Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu.

Kachikwu, who is also the Chairman of the NNPC Board, stressed that the position required Mr. Kyari’s deep experience to lead Nigeria’s team to the OPEC Economic Commission Board, ECB, which precedes the bi-annual meetings of the OPEC Ministerial Conference.

It was further gathered that Kachikwu is supposed to be Nigeria’s official representative, but decided to hand it over to Mr. Kyari.

The NNPC maintained that Kyari may from time to time be required to provide any support to the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, in the performance of Nigeria’s roles and participation in OPEC matters.

A Geologist of repute, Mr. Kyari, has worked with the NNPC as a “quintessential crude oil marketer, with prerequisite certification and outfield pedigree in petroleum economics and crude oil and gas trading”, the NNPC said

“Within the last 26 years, he has traversed the entire value chain of the petroleum industry, posting resounding performances in all his assignments and duty posts.

“Under his watch, the Crude Oil Marketing Division of the NNPC has recorded noticeable transformation in the management and sales of various Nigeria’s crude oil grades, via an infusion of transparency and automation of the processes”, the Corporation added.
