A new twist has been added to the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) shakeup/reshuffle saga as a source has authoritatively informed Elombah.com that the list provided by the Corporation is in fact fake and antiquated.
This medium had earlier today published a report that NNPC management denied reports that the recent shakeup within the corporation was designed to favour the northern zones of the country.
NNPC denied that only 15 people were appointed into key offices of NNPC, while the South-East region is not represented among those promoted within the organisation.
NNPC, thence, released the names of the 65 recently appointed officials on its website to defuse the brewing tension.
According to NNPC, the said shakeup was recently approved by the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari.
The NNPC list indicated that while 15 people were retired, every region are among the retired.
However, a well informed source within NNPC senior staff uncovered the fraud and blew the whistle on NNPC.
Finding fault with the 65-man list, he said:
“In fact the NNPC list an ancient list. It lists Dr Baru as GGM NAPIMS. Baru is currently Group MD of NNPC. Many people on this list have retired from NNPC since about 2 years ago. This list is fake.”
Continuing the source added:
“Goddy Jedy Agba retired in 2014 to contest for Governorship in Cross River under PDP, but stepped down before the primaries. Although he later decamped to APC and is a frontline aspirant for the parties ticket come 2019.”
Recall that Elombah.com had on Friday exposed the recent appointment by President Muhammadu Buhari upon resuming duty after over 100 day absence.
The report stated:
