DPR clarifies retirement of 11 directors

The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) has said the retirement of 11 directors was as a result of a presidential directive for the corporate reorganisation of the agency.

The Department, in a statement on Monday by its head of public affairs, Paul Osu, said following the appointment of its Director/CEO, Engr Sarki Auwalu, president Muhammadu Buhari gave approval for the corporate reorganisation of DPR to align with the government’s aspirations for the oil and gas industry and to ensure delivery of its regulatory mandate.

“The reorganisation necessitated the realignment of job functions, creation of new strategic business units, promotion of deserving staff to various positions and retirement of some management staff to pave the way for smooth implementation of the corporate restructuring,” the statement said.
