President Mohammadu Buhari has appointed Thomas M John as Acting Alternate Chairman of the state-run oil giant Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) Governing Board, a statement by the oil firm said on Wednesday.


John appointment was meant to fill the vacancy left behind by former minister of state for petroleum, Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu, whose tenure expired on May 28, when the president dissolved his cabinet.
The new acting chairman was a former Group Managing Director of the NNPC and was before the appointment, a member of the corporation’s Governing Board.
“He will hold the position of the Acting Alternate Chairman of the Governing Board until a new Minister of Petroleum Resources or Minister of State for Petroleum Resources is appointed to assume the Chairmanship or Alternate Chairmanship position, respectively in line with Sections 1(3) and 2(1) of the NNPC Act,” the NNPC said in the statement.
Buhari, who holds the position of the country’s petroleum minister during his first term in office, remains the chairman of the board.
