President Bola Tinubu has approved the appointment of three new executive commissioners to serve in the Nigerian Upstream Petroleum Regulatory Commission (NUPRC) and the redeployment of one current executive commissioner, pending their confirmation by the Nigerian Senate.

Ajuri Ngelale, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday.

The new executive commissioners are Bashir Indabawa, Executive Commissioner (North West), Exploration and Acreage Management; Dr Kelechi Ofoegbu, Executive Commissioner (Southeast), Corporate Services and Administration (Redeployed); Enorense Amadasu, Executive Commissioner (South-South), Development and Production; and Babajide Fasina, Executive Commissioner (South West), Economic Regulation and Strategic Planning.

Ngelale said the President approved the reshuffling and replacement based on his deeply informed assessment of all factors concerning the sector to establish a regulatory framework and culture that comprehensively disincentivises errant behaviour and incentivises diligence and rules-based business practice across the industry.
