Dr Ezra Yakusak will replace Mr Segun Awolowo as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC).

Segun Awolowo, the grandson of the late sage Chief Obafemi Awolowo, was first appointed by the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan in November 2013.

And he was reappointed for a second term as the CEO of NEPC in February 2018 by President Muhammadu Buhari.


The presidential spokesman Garba Shehu who made the announcement on behalf of Buhari disclosed that Yakusak’s appointment takes effect from November 27.

Dr Yakusak holds a PhD in commercial law from Ahmadu Bello University. He was the Director, of Policy, and Strategy and served as the Secretary to the NEPC Governing Board.

Garba said, “The appointment is for an initial term of four years in accordance with the provision of Section 7 (1) of the NEPC (Establishment) Act, 1987”.

NEPC is Nigeria’s agency that promotes agricultural and non-oil products to the rest of the World.

    Congrats to the new export council CEO, Dr. Yakusak!
    Considering the position of Turkey, the nexus connecting the east and the west, the south with the north, I would equally suggest the establishment of a center for Nigerian products in the country, to open more markets to our products to the world. It would go a long way considering Turkey being a tourism destination for different countries.
