The Street Journal has learnt from reliable sources close to the NNPC that the Chief Operations Officer (Joint Ventures and Business Development), Dr. Roland Onoriode Ewubare has resigned from the company.
News circulating say he resigned abruptly on health grounds on Wednesday morning, July 1 2020, and has since concluded plans to return back to the United States, from where he was recruited to join the NNPC a few years ago.
Prior to becoming Chief Operating Officer (Upstream) Dr. Ewubare who is from the South-south part of Nigeria was a very close adviser to the recently deceased General Manager of the NNPC, Maikanti Baru, under whom he served as Group General Manager (NAPIMS).
Before his NAPIMS’ appointment, he was the Managing Director of the Integrated Data Services Limited (IDSL), a seismic data acquisition company of NNPC based in Benin City in Edo State.
The NNPC has a promotion scale based on position and grade level attained.
