The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Boss Mustapha, announced this on Tuesday in a statement titled ‘Suspension of Inauguration of Newly Constituted Board Of NNPC LTD.’
He revealed that the inauguration of the Board, initially scheduled to hold on Wednesday, was suspended indefinitely.
