“It Would amount to some level of Insensitivity” Petroleum Agency’s Boss cancels birthday celebration

The Chief Executive of the Nigerian Upstream Petroleum Regulatory Commission (NUPRC), Mr Komolafe has ordered the cancellation of all activities made ahead of his 60th birthday celebration scheduled to hold on the 30th September.

Mr Komolafe turned 60 on 26th September and to celebrate the milestone, his friends, families and associates decided to organise a thanksgiving service.

In the statement entitled ‘Cancellation of Thanksgiving Service and Reception for CCE,’ Mr Komolafe said he sincerely appreciated the gesture of his family and well-wishers.

He further added;

”I sincerely regret the inconvenience the cancellation of the two events might cause invited guests. At this time, we are all expected to make sacrifices for the sake of our nation and our people. Given the mood of the nation at this time that people are struggling to wither the current economic storm and the government is making concerted efforts to halt the slide in the country’s economy, it would amount to some level of insensitivity, especially for a public servant, to engage in an elaborate ceremony of any kind, even if sponsored.

“May the Almighty God bless everyone and help our country’s recovery and growth efforts,” he said.

Honestly, we need more people like this in our country Nigeria.
