President Bola Tinubu on Tuesday approved the appointment of three new Executive Commissioners to serve in the Nigerian Upstream Petroleum Regulatory Commission, and the redeployment of one current Executive Commissioner, pending their confirmation by the Nigerian Senate.
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, disclosed this in a statement titled ‘President Tinubu appoints three new NUPRC executive commissioners.’
According to Ngelale, the President approved the reshuffling and replacement based on “his deeply informed assessment of all factors concerning the sector to establish a regulatory framework and culture that comprehensively disincentivises errant behaviour and incentivises diligence and rules-based business practice across the industry.”
