Forte Oil on Tuesday announced that it has changed its name to Ardova Plc.

This was made public through a disclosure on the Nigerian Stock Exchange signed by the company’ secretary, Oladehinde Nelson-cole.

“This is to notify the general public and all stakeholders that Forte Oil Plc (“the Company”) pursuant to a special resolution passed at the Extraordinary General Meeting held on December 17, 2019, and the approval of the Corporate Affairs Commission has changed its name to ARDOVA PLC.

“Pursuant to Section 31 (5) of the Companies and Allied Matters Act, the Company has been issued a new Certificate of Incorporation by the Registrar” it read.

The company has over years changed its name.

The decision to sell the shares came decision amidst plans to invest in petrochemicals and refining.
