Engr Nwapa (MNSE) was appointed executive secretary of the Nigerian Content Development & Monitoring Board in April 2010 following the signing of the Nigerian Content Act.

He has worked for many years in the international oil and gas industry gaining most of his experience within various capacities and functions at NNPC. His appointment as the pioneer Nigerian Content Coordinator in 2004 threw up the challenge of translating volumes of stakeholder recommendations into a comprehensive, implementable policy document.

This policy document was submitted to the Federal Government in February 2005 and provided the framework for setting up the NCD in March 2005. Engr Nwapa worked at the NCD until his appointment as group general manager Nigerian Content Division of NNPC in March 2010.

Engr Nwapa is a 1982 graduate of the Civil Engineering Department (BEngr) of the University of Nigeria Nsukka graduating with honours.

Engr Nwapa is internationally recognised and well known for his advocacy and promotion of capacity building and local content development in national oil and gas industries.
