FG Recommends Bakindo For OPEC Secretary-General

FEDERAL Government of Nigeria has recommended a former Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mohammed Barkindo for the position of Secretary-General of the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) to succeed Abdalla El-Badri who was due in office in 2012 however got extension of office to July 2016. 
 
The federal government nominee led the NNPC till 2010 and also served as acting Secretary-General of OPEC in 2006 as well as serving as the country’s representative in the organization.


Opinion polls at the moment seemingly stand in favour of the federal government nominee following his experiences and in-depth understanding of the system at OPEC having satisfactorily occupied the position albeit on acting capacity.

According to the assessment by the Wall Street Journal, the succeeding OPEC boss was likely to come either from Indonesia, Nigeria or Angola due to the neutrality the three countries displayed during the disagreement that almost reduced the group to dismemberments.
