Dayo Mobereola, the newly appointed director general of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, (NIMASA) has assumed duty.

In his maiden address, he said NIMASA under his leadership will build a purpose-driven organisation, and prioritise effective communication at all levels to enhance innovation, collaboration and synergy.

He said the Agency would prioritise safety, security, efficiency, and environmental sustainability among others.

“We must strive to foster innovation and excellence in everything we do. The maritime industry is constantly evolving, driven by technological advancements, changing market dynamics, and evolving regulatory frameworks. As leaders in the sector, we must embrace innovation, adapt to change, and continuously seek ways to enhance the efficiency, competitiveness, and resilience of our maritime operations.

“I do not doubt that every individual within our organisation has the potential to achieve greatness; we will, therefore, ensure that we build a purpose-driven organisation by investing in our staff, processes, and the entire system to achieve our mandate. I aim to create an atmosphere that encourages the development of our employees’ skills, talents, and creativity,” Mobereola said.

He also used the opportunity to express gratitude to the President Bola Tinubu, for entrusting him with the responsibility of steering the affairs of the Agency.

“It is with great enthusiasm and a sense of purpose that I step into this position, fully committed to steering our organisation toward greater heights, while upholding the highest standards of integrity, diligence, and service to our nation,” he said.

He thanked Adegboyega Oyetola, minister of Marine and Blue Economy, for his guidance throughout the appointment process, and expressed readiness to work with him in achieving the objectives of the Ministry.

Earlier, Chudi Offodile, executive director of Finance and Administration, who led other management staff to receive the Director General, pledged the cooperation of the staff for the success of the Agency.

On March 11, 2024, President Bola Tinubu approved the appointment of Dayo Mobereola to serve as director-general of NIMASA for a renewable term of four years.

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 in England, and a fellow of the same institute in Nigeria.

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