President Bola Tinubu has appointed Dayo Mobereola as the director-general of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA).

In a statement by Ajuri Ngelale, special adviser to the president on media and publicity, the appointment followed the exit of Bashir Jamoh, whose tenure recently expired.

Jamoh had handed over to Chudi Offodile, the executive director, finance and administration, on March 11, after his tenure ended on March 10.

Ngelale said: “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, and a fellow of the same institute in Nigeria.”


“He was the Managing Director of Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA) from 2003 to 2015 and was also the Commissioner for Transportation in Lagos State from 2015 to 2016.

“In the private sector, he was Deputy Managing Director and Project Development Director at AFM Consulting Plc, London. He was also Senior Economist at British Petroleum Shipping Limited, London.”

The special adviser said Tinubu expects Mobereola to bring his vast experience to bear in his new role under the leadership of Adegboyega Oyetola, minister of marine and blue economy.


“The President expects the new Director-General to bring his vast experience to bear in his new role and to achieve the mandate of NIMASA in providing world-leading standards of maritime safety administration, maritime labour regulation, marine pollution prevention and control, search and rescue, cabotage enforcement, shipping development and ship registration, in accordance with the policies and programmes of the Renewed Hope Agenda for the sector as ably guided by the Honourable Minister of Marine and Blue Economy, H.E. Adegboyega Oyetola,” Ngelale said.

Mobereola appointment is renewable after four years.

In his handover speech, Jamoh said the next leadership of the agency should consolidate the gains of the past four years.
