A top official of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), has resigned. Rowland Ewubare, the chief operating officer of the state-owned oil corporation, suddenly turned in his resignation on Friday.

Mr Ewubare was the NNPC’s Group General Manager, National Petroleum Investments and Management Services (NAPIMS) and doubled as the Managing Director of the Integrated Data Services Limited (IDSL), a seismic data acquisition company of the corporation, before his redeployment a few months ago.

There was no official reason for Mr Ewubare’s sudden departure after he turned in a resignation letter on Wednesday morning.

However, the Delta-born Ewubare said he had no personal or professional differences with the NNPC’s chief executive Mele Kyari. He said that he and Mr Kyari remained “close friends” and that Mr Kyari had been very supportive.

“I’m leaving to return to my family in the United States. I have been in NNPC for five years, mostly away from them. With the pandemic, I can’t travel to visit them and they can’t come to visit me. It’s tough. At the core, I’m a family man. Stepping down solely for personal family reasons. That’s the truth,” Ewubare said.

The NNPC did not respond to a request for comment.
