by Area Talk

President Bola Tinubu has approved the appointment of Dr. Dayo Mobereola as the Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency for a renewable term of four years. Mobereola will be taking over from Mr. Bashir Jamoh, whose tenure recently came to an end.

The announcement of Mobereola’s appointment was made in a statement on Tuesday by the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, titled ‘President Tinubu appoints new NIMASA Director-General.’

Dr. Mobereola holds a Ph.D. and an M.Sc in Transport Economics from the University of Wales, United Kingdom. He is a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Transport, England, as well as a fellow of the same institute in Nigeria. His previous roles include serving as the Managing Director of Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority from 2003 to 2015 and as the Commissioner for Transportation in Lagos State from 2015 to 2016. In the private sector, he has held positions such as Deputy Managing Director and Project Development Director at AFM Consulting Plc, London, and Senior Economist at British Petroleum Shipping Limited, London.

President Tinubu expects Dr. Mobereola to utilize his extensive experience in his new role and to fulfill NIMASA’s mandate of providing world-leading standards of maritime safety administration, maritime labor regulation, marine pollution prevention and control, and search and rescue. The President also anticipates improvements in cabotage enforcement, shipping development, and ship registration, in alignment with the policies and programs of his Renewed Hope Agenda for the sector, as guided by the Minister of Marine and Blue Economy, Adegboyega Oyetola.
