Nigerian government returns immigration documents to Seplat CEO

Seplat Energy announced on Tuesday that the Ministry of Interior and the Nigeria Immigration Service have restored the working permit, combined expatriate residence permit and aliens card and other visas for the entry or stay in Nigeria of the company’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Roger Brown.

The company had previously announced that the immigration documents were withdrawn by the ministry, following “false allegations of racism, unfair prejudice, discrimination and improper immigration status made by certain individuals parading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 said it cooperated fully with the verification checks conducted by the immigration authorities, which resulted in the restored immigration status of Brown.

“In view of the restored Immigration Documents, Mr. Brown can now validly enter, work, and stay in Nigeria and today has resumed his position as CEO of Seplat Energy,” the statement said.

It added that Brown has resumed his role as CEO.
