The Board of Directors of the Nigeria LNG Limited has approved the appointment of Tony Attah as the new Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the company.
The position was held by Babs Omotowa for nearly five years before it was announced by the company in a statement released on Thursday that he would be returning to to Shell International in the Hague, Netherlands.
The statement was signed by the company’s General Manager, External Relations, Kudo Eresia-Eke.
The NLNG said Omotowa, who was appointed CEO by the board in December 2011, would be greatly missed for his uncommon vision, professionalism, compassion and commitment.
It further said Attah, a former managing director of Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company, would be taking over as the next boss of the company once he returns from an assignment at Shell’s Group Integrated Gas business as senior projects advisor, working on projects in the Netherlands and Singapore.
