The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has appointed the Country Manager, until recently, of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) in charge of coordinating implementation of EITI standards across Anglophone Africa, Ms. Murjanatu Ibrahim Gamawa as EITI Implementation Programme Manager to help drive speedy attainment of EITI requirements across its operations.
A statement today, December 18, by the group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Dr. Kennie Obateru, said that the move is in keeping with the NNPC’s resolve to deepen its compliance with the transparency standards.
The statement said that Ms. Gamawa’s appointment takes effect from January 2021, adding that the move is a practical step towards entrenching the culture of transparency in the Corporation.
The new EITI Implementation Programme Manager is a petroleum geologist who had worked at the Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI) as a petroleum analyst and team lead of the Oil and Gas Team.
Gamawa’s wealth of experience across the Oil and Gas industry and in EITI mandate implementation is expected to boost the Corporation’s compliance strategy and roadmap.
