NGE hails ex-president’s appointment as GGM of NNPC
The Nigerian Guild of Editors (NGE) has congratulated its former president, Garba Mohammed, on his appointment as the Group General Manager (Public Affairs) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).
In a statement yesterday, signed by its President, Mustapha Isah, and General Secretary, Iyobosa Uwugiaren, the umbrella of editors in Nigeria said Mohammed was eminently qualified for the position, considering his experience in the media and the petroleum sector.
“We commend the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Chief Timipre Sylva, and the Group Managing Director of NNPC, Mele Kyari, for making the right choice.
“Mohammed’s appointment comes at a time the NNPC is undergoing a transition following the signing of the Petroleum Industry Act by President Muhammadu Buhari,” the NGE stated.
While thanking the outgoing NNPC spokesperson, Dr. Kennie Obateru, for his excellent relationship with the guild during his tenure, the editors said they look forward to working with Mohammed to deliver on his onerous assignment.
