He was the GMD of the state-owned behemoth between 2014 and 2015.
Mele Kolo Kyari, incumbent GMD announced Dawha’s death on Twitter on Monday.
“The NNPC family regrets to announce the passing away of Dr Joseph Thalama Dawha, GMD NNPC 2014- 2015 after a brief illness. We remember his astute leadership and immense contributions to the progress of the Corporation. It’s a great loss to us, the nation and the family,” he said.
