President Muhammadu Buhari will later this month replace the Group Managing Director (GMD), Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Dr. Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu.
Reports gathered indicate that Buhari has already picked out three persons, including Deputy Managing Director of the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG), Isa Mohammed Inuwa.
Inuwa was Group General Manager, Corporate Services in NNPC before he joined NLNG.
The race to succeed Kachikwu, former Executive Vice Chairman and General Counsel of Exxon-Mobil (Africa), began after Buhari sent his name as a ministerial nominee to the Senate.
Kachikwu, who has been cleared, is expected to emerge as the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, a ministry Buhari has announced he will keenly supervise.
 Kachikwu beat two others – Inuwa and General Manager, Total E&P Nigeria Limited, Mr. Ahmadu-Kida Musa – to emerge as NNPC GMD in August, replacing Dr. Joseph Dawha.
With the elevation of Kachikwu, Buhari has reportedly added one more name to contest with Inuwa and Musa for the top job.
The trio are all northerners. This is not unexpected as Kachikwu will be a minister of state from Delta State in Southern part of the country.
Meanwhile, the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) has been mandated to review the profiles of the three nominees and make a recommendation to the president.
Kachikwu, industry players, say has done well in his short time in office.
Part of his achievements are monthly publication of NNPC sales, public opening of bid tenders in a bid to ensure transparency, reducing the corporation’s directorates from eight to five to improve efficiency and reduce cost of running the organisation.
Two weeks ago, Kachikwu met with the President of Ghana, John Mahama in Kumasi, Ghana, to reach a deal on the outstanding debts owed Nigeria by the Volta River Authority (VRA) for gas supplied.

I wonder the kind of plans he has to move Nigeria forward, because all this we are hearing and seeing is not a sign of moving Nigeria forward

Thats the change you have all clamored for, on the flip side, Kachikwu is becoming a minister, so no biggie, hopefully he can be the minister of petroleum, but we shall see!!

I would have made comments like, why a Northerner? but seriously, our people are very useless people, give them all the appointments in the oil sector and they will not do anything meaningful in the region...like some one once said on this forum, let us allow Hausa and the North to rule, since they are united and speak with one voice...our people, the Ijaws,Urhobo,Itsekiri,Isoko,Yoruba,Igbos,Ikwerre etc all they do is insult each and attack each other...how many times have you heard of a Northerner insulting Buhari or making inflammatory statements against this govt?..even with the glaring failure of Buhari to meet up with his promises..the North are still united...how many times have you heard of tribunals canceling elections in the North?...Cant you see, the North are well coordinated and as such should rule
