President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the re-appointment of Olusegun Awolowo as the executive director/chief executive officer (CEO) of the Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC).


According to a letter signed by Boss Mustapha, secretary to the government of the federation (SGF), the appointment lasts for four years.

A lawyer and scion of the Obafemi Awolowo family, former President Goodluck Jonathan first appointed him in November 2013.

At the expiration of his four-year tenure, which was characterised by controversies, Awolowo refused to hand over to Sidi-Aliyu Abdullahi, an acting director, despite the directive of the SGF.


In a memo dated December 4, 2017, Mustapha directed all heads of agencies to hand over as soon as their tenures expire.

After a report by TheCable, Awolowo returned cars meant for official use at the executive director’s office but did not issue a handover note.
