The Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Dr. Joseph Thlama Dawha has said that the Corporation under his watch would sustain the ongoing transformation of the upstream, midstream and downstream sectors of the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry in order to impact positively on the economy.



Dr. Dawha stated this Wednesday while taking over the baton of leadership from the former GMD, Engr. Andrew Laah Yakubu at the NNPC Towers, Abuja.

The New GMD expressed gratitude to President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan on his appointment and assured that the management under him would find lasting solutions to some of the knotty issues plaguing the petroleum sector.

He applauded Engr. Yakubu for his commitment and dedication to the service of the nation over the last thirty years and wished him well in his future endeavor.

Dr. Dawha solicited for maximum support from the members of staff stressing that the moment has come for the NNPC to impact more on the Nigerian society.

Earlier, the former GMD, Engr. Yakubu thanked the President for the opportunity given him to rise to the pinnacle of his career and congratulated the new GMD on his well-deserved appointment.
Engr. Yakubu described the new GMD of NNPC as a thorough bred professional who has the intellectual capacity to navigate the NNPC and the entire oil industry to the next level.

Before his appointment as GMD, Dr. Dawha was the Group Executive Director for Exploration and Production of the NNPC where he was saddled with the onerous responsibility of repositioning and setting strategic direction for the upstream exploration and production activities of the NNPC.

The new GMD joined the services of the NNPC in 1988 and by dint of hard work and dedication, rose to the rank of Executive Director Commercial Services of Eleme Petrochemical Company Limited (now Indorama) Port Harcourt in 2003, from where he was appointed the Managing Director of Integrated Data Services Limited, Benin in 2005.

Dr. Dawha as MD IDSL turned around the fortunes of IDSL which saw it exceeds its target between 2007 and 2010.

The new GMD of NNPC hails from Biu in Borno State and obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical engineering from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria in 1977, a Masters of Science in the same discipline in 1985 and a Doctorate degree in Chemical Engineering in 1988.

A passionate golfer, he is married with children.

    So you, as the restorer, have to set realistic goals as to exactly what parts of the car you
    are going to restore to their original states and what parts of the
    car you are willing to restore "as close as possible" to their original states.
    Producing a very light car will drop its fuel consumption, and oil companies will not appreciate this.
    The damage varies from vehicle to vehicle but can be as small as
    light hail damage which is barely visible through to damage caused by falling trees.

    A new technology introduced by one of the biggest automobile companies, Volvo, will ensure that your car avoid
    accidents on the roads involving pedestrians.

    Once you do that take a spray bottle filled with 4 cups of warm water and
    a tablespoon of detergent and spray the stain.
    It is available in two versions of petrol and diesel and has been a very reasonable price.

    Undoubtedly, the internet is among the most preferred market places where sellers and buyers meet.
    Now you will soon forget about key-fobs as well since new biometric revolution is
    going to allow you to enter your car with your fingerprint, face detection or eyeball recognition. According to Campbell Fuller, spokesman for the
    ICA, buyers need to contact their insurer before agreeing to a
    purchase.

    The proceeds of selling your older car can go to the operations of the charity like giving food or clothing to
    the family that they supported. Once you do that take a spray bottle filled with 4 cups of
    warm water and a tablespoon of detergent and spray the
    stain. This is a rear-wheel drive car, and that means that
    unlike front-wheel drive cars - which typically
    can't be used much beyond B class - the MR2 can be upgraded all the way to
    the top of A - although going into S class
    is probably a bit much.

    dealer to another for ideal model. According to Campbell Fuller,
    spokesman for the ICA, buyers need to contact their insurer before agreeing to
    a purchase.
