Brief History of NCDMB

The foundation for NCDMB was laid in 2001 when former President Olusegun Obasanjo inaugurated the Presidential Committee on Local Content in the Oil and Gas Industry. He mandated the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to drive the policy and set certain targets.

In its efforts to implement the policy, the national oil company set up the Nigerian Content Division within its system and issued some Nigerian Content directives to industry stakeholders.

Since there was no force of law behind the Nigerian Content directives, operators of the industry found it convenient to comply on best endeavor basis.
This situation provided the impetus for the Ministry of Petroleum Resources, NNPC and other industry stakeholders to work closely with the National Assembly to develop the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry Content Development (NOGICD) Bill.

During the succeeding administration of late President Umaru Yar’Adua/Goodluck Jonathan, the National Assembly passed the NOGICD Bill.
President Goodluck Jonathan assented the Bill into law on April 22 and this gave birth to the NCDMB.

Dr. Ernest Nwapa, former staff of the Nigerian Content Division of NNPC served as the pioneer Executive Secretary from April 2010 to May l 2015. He was succeeded by Arc Denzel Kentebe. In September 2016, Engr. Simbi Kesiye Wabote was appointed as the 3rd substantive Executive Secretary of the Board.
