Seplat Energy has announced that the Ministry of Interior and the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) have reinstated the Working Permit, Combined Expatriate Residence Permit and Aliens Card (CERPAC), and other visas for the entry or stay in Nigeria of the company’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Mr. Roger Brown.
This information was disclosed in a corporate disclosure report on the NGX website seen by RateCaptain.
Previously, Seplat Energy had revealed that the Immigration Documents were withdrawn by the Ministry in response to false allegations of racism, unfair prejudice, discrimination, and improper immigration status made by individuals claiming to be “concerned workers and stakeholders of Seplat Energy Plc.” The company fully cooperated with the verification checks conducted by the Immigration Authorities, leading to the restoration of Roger Brown’s immigration status.
With the Immigration Documents now reinstated, Mr. Brown can validly enter, work, and stay in Nigeria. Today, he has resumed his position as the CEO of Seplat Energy. The Board and Management of Seplat Energy Plc express their satisfaction that Mr. Brown has returned to his role as CEO, enabling the company to continue making strong strides in achieving its operational targets for 2023.
