The Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Mr Garba Deen Muhammad, on Monday in Abuja denied being removed from office as reported in some national dailies.
Muhammad told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) through the telephone that he had not been officially informed of his removal or purported reshuffle in the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).
“I cannot comment on the rumour of reshuffle. I heard about it but I’ve not received any communication officially.
“I cannot confirm or deny the story because I have not been informed; when I get any information I will update you.’’
There were reports that he was moved in a major shake-up and degraded to the level of General Manager.
Also, the report said he had been replaced with Mr Ndu Ughamadu, former NNPC spokesperson under ex-NNPC Group Managing Director, Dr Jackson Gaius-Obaseki. (NAN)
