Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has brought in new managerial blood at Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) in another attempt at reform. Mallam Mele Kolo Kyari takes over as NNPC’s group managing director on 8 July. Kyari, a veteran of NNPC’s well-regarded crude oil marketing division, replaces Maikanti Baru, who has reached the firm’s statutory retirement age of 60.
