President Bola Tinubu is currently meeting the Shell Global Upstream Director, Ms Zoë Yujnovich, at the State House, Abuja.
Yujnovich, who assumed office as Upstream Director on July 1 has been a member of the Shell Executive Committee since 2021.
She arrived at the Aso Rock Villa alongside three other Shell officials at about 11:45 am and was ushered into the President’s office complex for the meeting scheduled for 12:00 noon.
Our correspondent observed that the Group Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited, Mele Kyari, is also seated for the meeting.
Monday’s meeting is President Tinubu’s first engagement since resuming office after the Sallah festivities and his foreign trips to France on June 13 and London on June 17. It forms part of ongoing consultations with leaders from the oil and gas sector since his administration discontinued petroleum subsidy on May 29.
On June 8, The PUNCH reports that the President received Exxon Mobil Executives – Mr. Liam Mallon, Mr. Richard Laing and Mrs. Adesua Dozie – at the State House.
He also met other key figures from the oil-rich Niger Delta region, including former Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Timi Alaibe and former Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, Dr Dakuku Peterside.
