Calm in NNPC as OPEC meets
The delegation is led by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Petroleum Resources, Dr. Jemila Shua’ra. The OPEC meeting started on Wednesday with an international seminar, with “Petroleum – An Engine Room of Global Development” as theme.
Shua’ra is expected to play multiple roles as OPEC governor, president and head of Nigeria’s delegation to the meeting, having assumed OPEC Presidency because Nigeria does not have a substantive Minister of Petroleum Resources presently.
The immediate past Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, was elected president of the oil cartel during its meeting last November.
