By Frank Oshanugor
The Federal Government of Nigeria has restored the Working Permit, Combined Expatriate Residence Permit and Aliens Card (“CERPAC”)
and other Visas for the entry or stay in Nigeria (“Immigration Documents”) of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Seplat Energy Plc, Mr. Roger Brown.
This was made known in a statement on Tuesday by the Company’s management to the effect that the Ministry of Interior and the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) have restored the aforementioned immigration.
The firm had previously announced that the Immigration Documents were withdrawn by the Ministry, following false allegations of
racism, unfair prejudice, discrimination and improper immigration status made by certain individuals parading as “concerned workers and stakeholders of Seplat Energy Plc”.
The Company cooperated fully with the verification checks conducted by the Immigration Authorities, which resulted in the restored immigration status of Roger Brown.
In view of the restored Immigration Documents, Mr. Brown can now validly enter, work, and stay in Nigeria. Management has
subsequently announced the resumption of Brown today in his position as CEO of Seplat Energy.
The Board and Management of Seplat Energy Plc have expressed happiness that Mr. Brown has resumed in his role as CEO, as the
Company continues to make strong strides in delivering its 2023 operational targets.
