Imo APC lawmakers laud Araraume’s appointment as NNPC board chair
Imo State lawmakers in the National Assembly have described the recent appointment of Senator Ifeanyi Ararume as Chairman of the Board of the new Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited as a reflection of the high regard President Muhammadu Buhari holds the Southeast region.
In a goodwill message by the lawmakers under the aegis of Imo State All Progressives Congress (APC) Caucus in the National Assembly, the legislators said the appointment has vindicated them since they had always maintained that President Buhari had no issues with the Southeast.
They described Araraume as “an employer of labour, astute businessman and political leader,” maintaining that “he has the competence, honour and requisite background to ensure that the NNPC Limited was run commercially like any other business venture.”
In the message signed by Ugonna C. Ozuruigbo representing Nwangele/Njaba/Isu/Nkwerre Federal Constituency; Dr. Pascal Obi representing Ideato North/Ideato South Federal Constituency and Kingsley Uju representing Ohaji/Egbema/Oguta Federal Constituency, the lawmakers pledged their loyalty and that of their constituents to the Buhari administration.
