By the latest appointments, the NNPC is committed to promote inclusion of women in business leadership and further shrink the organization for effective delivery.

Persecondnews recalls that NNPC had transformed to a CAMA company following the implementation of the Petroleum Industry Act.

On September 21, 2021, the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) had completed the incorporation of the NNPC Ltd in accordance with the provisions of the Petroleum Industry Act 2021.

President Muhammadu Buhari had on August 16, 2021, signed the Petroleum Industry Bill  following its passage by the National Assembly in July 2021, a bill that had got stuck in the legislature for about 10 years.

For instance, Section 53(1) of the Petroleum Industry Act 2021, requires the Minister of Petroleum Resources to cause for the incorporation of the NNPC Limited within six months of the enactment of the PIA in consultation with the Minister of Finance on the nominal shares of the Company.

As a registered company, the NNPC Ltd was floated with an initial capital of N200 billion, being the company with the highest share capital in the history of the country.
