President Buhari Appoints Orji Ogbonnaya Orji As NEITI Boss


President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the appointment of Orji Ogbonnaya Orji as the executive secretary of the Nigeria Extractives Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI).

Orji succeeds Waziri Adio who was appointed in February 2016.

His appointment, which takes effect from February 19, 2021, for a single term of five years, was announced by Willie Bassey, director of information at the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (OSGF).

“Mr President enjoins the new appointee to serve the nation with all sense of responsibility, honesty, diligence and promote good governance in the discharge of his duties,” the statement read.

Until his appointment, he was NEITI’s director of communications and advocacy.

NEITI was established in 2004 as the key anti-corruption agency at the presidency to ensure transparency, accountability and governance of the country’s oil, gas and mining industries.

Information available on the Extractives Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) website shows that NEITI has identified $9.8 billion by various players in the extractive sector owed to the federal government, of which $2.4 billion has been recovered through NEITI’s efforts.
