Masters Energy repositions as Ogah bows out
The board of Masters Energy Group has constituted a new management following the resignation of Dr Uchechukwu Samson Ogah. A statement from the Group said this follows the appointment of Ogah as Minister Designate to represent Abia State by President Muhammad Buhari.
Ogah’s appointment follows several grand achievements in business and his myriad of contributions to the nation and Abia State in particular. The board also announced the appointment of Patience Dappa as Acting Managing Director/CEO, following the resignation of Ogah, who also contested the Governorship election in Abia State under the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Ogah announced his decision to step down as the President of Masters Energy, while proceeding to contest the election in accordance with the laws of the country that require any person aspiring to public office to step down from whatever enterprise he/she was engaged in the public sector/private sector before assuming public office.
The statement read in part, “The appointment of Patience Dappa as Acting Group Managing Director/CEO is part of the repositioning programme approved by the board.”Despite the successful growth and transformation of Masters Energy Group, Ogah had taken a back seat in the group’s affairs since his foray into politics some years ago.
Dappa, responding to her appointment, said: “My appointment as Acting GMD/CEO shows that the board recognises hard work. I will build on the success story of Dr Ogah so that the company he left behind will stand out as a benchmark in his service to the nation as a public official.”
The board also announced other appointments, including the Executive Vice Chairman, Sir Vincent U. K. Ajala; Group Executive Director, Mrs Ngozi Sabina Ogah; Vice President/Group Executive Director, Chukwuemeka Ogah; and executive directors, Felix Eribo, Ogbonnaya Onu, and Ugochukwu Nwofor.
While Ogah’s exit from the Group will leave big shoes to be filled, however, his unique dynamism and intellect will be an enormous asset to the nation as his exemplary service in private enterprise has shown.Masters Energy Group, an indigenous conglomerate with subsidiaries and interests across a variety of industries will now be led by the new Management.
