Abia State Deputy Governor, Rt. Hon. Ude Chukwu has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for the appointment of Senator Margery Okadigbo as Chairman of the Board of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC).
He described it as "a decision that has calmed frayed nerves and attracted the confidence and goodwill which the NNPC requires to attract investments to the Oil Sector".
The Deputy Governor stated this during a visit to Mrs. Okadigbo in Abuja. He said he had come to congratulate Senator Okadigbo on her appointment on behalf of the Governor of Abia, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, and the people of the State.
He further expressed the view that Senator Okadigbo as a very senior lawyer, had the competence, experience and discipline to reposition the NNPC in furtherance of the economic interests of the country.
The Deputy Governor also enjoined Senator Okadigbo to remain committed to the legacies of her husband, Dr. Chuba Okadigbo, and deploy his principles to her new assignment. He added that Dr. Okadigbo was known for his commitment to principles and selfless service to Nigeria.
Responding, Mrs. Okadigbo promised never to let the President and Nigerians down. She assured me that she would discharge her responsibilities in the interest of the Nation. NNL.
