FLASH: Buhari Rejects Judgment Reinstating Ararume As NNPC Chair

President Muhammadu Buhari has said the court judgment which ordered the reinstatement of Ifeanyi Ararume as chairman of the Nigeria National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited will be appealed.

Buhari had appointed Araume as board chairman of the corporation in September 2021, but he was later sacked and replaced with Margaret Chuba Okadigbo in January, 2022.

Ararume had sued the president, arguing that his sack was “wrongful,” and amounted to “disruption and interruption” of the term of his office.

In a judgement delivered on Tuesday, Justice Inyang Ekwo ordered that the former senator be reinstated as a non-executive chairman of the NNPC, with all rights and privileges due to him.
