FG restores immigration documents of Seplat boss
Seplat Energy has announced that the working permit, Combined Expatriate Residence Permit and Aliens Card (CERPAC) and other visas for the entry or stay in Nigeria of the company’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Roger Brown have been restored by Ministry of Interior and the Nigeria Immigration Service.
The company had earlier stated that the ministry withdrew the immigration documents following false allegations of racism, unfair prejudice, discrimination and improper immigration status made by certain individuals parading as “concerned workers and stakeholders of Seplat Energy Plc”.
The company cooperated fully with the verification checks conducted by Immigration authorities, which resulted in the restored immigration status of Brown.
In view of the restored immigration documents, Brown can now validly enter, work, and stay in Nigeria and would immediately resume his duties as CEO of Seplat Energy.
Board Chairman, Seplat Energy Plc, Basil Omiyi, who confirmed this to The Guardian, said: “Mr. Brown has resumed in his role as CEO, as the company continues to make strong strides in delivering its 2023 operational targets.
“This announcement is made pursuant to Rule 17.10 of the Rulebook of the Nigerian Exchange, 2015 (Issuer’s Rule).”
Meanwhile, the company has announced the appointment of Mrs. Chioma Y. Afe as the Director, External Affairs and Sustainability effective June 15th 2023.
