President Bola Tinubu has appointed chief executive officers (CEOs) for the National Oil Spill Detection and Response Agency (NOSDRA) and the Ogun-Osun River Basin Development Authority (OORBDA).

In a statement shared by Bayo Onanuga, special adviser, information and strategy to the president, Tinubu reassigned Chukwuemeka Woke (pictured) to NOSDRA to serve as director general and CEO.

Woke was previously the head of the OORBDA.

Tinubu appointed Adedeji Ashiru to replace Woke as managing director and CEO of OORBDA.


“Engr. Woke, besides being an engineer, is an environmental specialist and politician. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical/Petrochemical Engineering and has served under the Environmental, Safety, and Operations Departments of the then Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC),” the presidency said.

“He was chairman of Emohua Local Government Area of Rivers State and Chief of Staff, Government House, Port Harcourt, for many years.

“Dr. Ashiru holds a Doctorate degree in Engineering from the Common Wealth University, UK, and has led a consortium of blue-chip companies, in addition to earning many stripes in his professional endeavour.”


Tinubu said he expects the new CEOs to deploy their competencies to these critical agencies for sustainable gains and turnaround, while maintaining utmost transparency in their operations.
