Buhari Appoints Atuonwo Obinna As PPPRA Chairman
PPPRA is a federal government agency that determines and fixes the prices of petroleum products in Nigeria.
Femi Adesina, presidential spokesman, made this known in a statement on Friday, adding that the President also approved the reappointment of Abdulkadir Saidu Umar as the executive secretary of PPPRA.
According to the statement, Obinna’s appointment is in accordance with Section 2 (1-3) and 3 (a) of PPPRA (Establishment, ETC) Act 2003.
He will replace Mohammed Buba who was appointed in 2016 as chairman of PPPRA, following Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) demand that the federal government reconstitute the agency’s board.
Recently, Buhari made new appointments across various ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs).
On Thursday, the president appointed Emmanuel-Lyambee Jime as executive secretary of the Nigerian Shippers Council (NSC) for four years.
On June 18, he approved the appointment of five new permanent secretaries in the Federal Civil Service.
Buhari also appointed Balarabe Ilelah as the director-general of National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) this month.
