Nigeria: NUPRC plans to move departments to Lagos

The Nigerian Upstream Petroleum Regulatory Commission (NUPRC) is considering relocating some units from Abuja to Lagos.

In a memo dated, referenced as CSA/HGA/MRP/ML/001 and signed by Executive Commissioner Kelechi Ofoegbu, the commission revealed its contemplation of relocating certain units from Abuja to Lagos.

The memo titled ‘Movement to Lagos’ indicates the commission’s intention to relocate. It cites the aim to improve service delivery, cut operational costs, and optimize asset utilization in Lagos as the driving factors behind the move.

The memo specified that all departments must submit the names of requested units by February 23rd.

The memo read in part: “In line with our objective of improving organisational efficiency, driving industry growth, and managing office accommodation in Abuja, we are exploring the possibility of relocating certain units to Lagos. This initiative is driven by the need to enhance our service delivery, reduce operational costs and make adequate utilisation of our assets in Lagos.

“Consequently, we are requesting that each department identify and provide a list of units that can operate independently and with minimal supervision. “Submissions on the above are expected on or before the close of business on Friday 23rd February 2024.”

The decision follows closely after the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) revealed its intention to relocate certain units from Abuja to Lagos.

The Federal Government, via the Ministry of Aviation, announced plans to relocate the headquarters of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) from Abuja to Lagos. This move aims to enhance operational efficiency and reduce expenses.
