Simbi Wabote

SIMBI Wabote, executive secretary of the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board, NCDMB, has been reappointed for a second tenure.

President Muhammadu Buhari renewed his appointment today along with that of  other chief executive officers of agencies under the ministry of petroleum resources.

The reappointments followed recommendations to the President by Timipre Sylva, minister of State petroleum resources.

Apart from Wabote, Bello Aliyu Gusau gets another nod as the executive secretary of Petroleum Technology Development Fund, PTDF, while Ahmed Bobboi is the executive Secretary and chief executive officer of Petroleum Equalization Fund, PEF.

Gusau is credited to have run the PTDF successfully in the past four years, keeping faith with the seven strategic priorities he had introduced in January 2017. These are: domestication, cost cutting, sustainable funding, efficient internal processes, linkages with the industry, utilization of centers of excellence, and Pursuit of home-grown research.

Bobboi gets his reappointment for having run PEF in a way that made it a key and strategic player in the administration’s oil and gas reforms, especially in stabilizing the supply and distribution of petroleum products across the country, among others.

Wabote won his pips for managing the Nigerian Content Development Fund prudently, completing the headquarters building of NCDMB, and also initiating many landmark projects that are widely commended by industry players.

All the appointments take immediate effect, a release on September 25, by Femi Adesina, special adviser to the president, Media and Publicity, said.
