In a terse statement signed by the outgoing Group Managing Director of the NNPC, Dr. Maikanti Baru, the appointment of John, who before this appointment was a member of the Governing Board, takes effect immediately.

Baru said, “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.”
