President Bola Tinubu on Monday appointed Dr. Abdullahi Mustapha as the Director-General and Chief Executive Officer of the Energy Commission of Nigeria.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, disclosed this in a statement he signed on Monday titled ‘President Tinubu appoints new ECN Chief Executive Officer.’
Until his appointment, Mustapha served for over a decade in the Nigerian Upstream Petroleum Regulatory Commission with significant experience in the Energy and Space Technology sectors.
He most recently obtained his Doctorate degree in Mechanical Engineering with a focus on Renewable Energy, followed by a Post-Doctoral Fellowship as a Research Associate in the School of Engineering at the prestigious University of Manchester, England.
Tinubu said he expects the new ECN Chief Executive to “make a positive impact on his administration’s intensive push to diversify the nation’s energy sources in a synergised fashion across the government towards the ultimate aim of industrialising every part of the country with every citizen emancipated from the shackles of energy poverty.”
