Nigeria has nominated a former Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mohammed Barkindo, for Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) Secretary-General.

The Organisation has been looking for a replacement for Abdullah al-Badri, who was elected acting secretary-general in December. His term is due to end in July.

“We are putting Barkindo forward for the job of OPEC secretary general because he has the required qualification and experience,” a government official said, asking not to be named.

He was the NNPC GMD between 2009 and 2010.
