In a significant move, President Bola Tinubu has given his approval for the appointment of Engr. Chukwuemeka Woke as the Director-General/Chief Executive Officer of the National Oil Spill Detection and Response Agency (NOSDRA).

This decision comes as redeployment for Engr. Woke, who previously held the position of Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of the Ogun-Osun River Basin Development Authority (OORBDA) under President Tinubu’s administration.

The President, in a strategic move, has now appointed Dr. Adediji to lead the OORBDA while entrusting Engr. Woke with the crucial responsibility at NOSDRA.

Engr. Chukwuemeka Woke brings a diverse skill set to his new role, with a background in engineering, environmental expertise, and a history in politics. Holding a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical/Petrochemical Engineering, he has garnered valuable experience from his time in various capacities within the environmental, safety, and operations divisions of the former Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).

Prior to this appointment, Engr. Woke has also held notable positions such as Chairman of Emohua Local Government Area in Rivers State and Chief of Staff at the Government House in Port Harcourt, showcasing his leadership capabilities and administrative prowess over the years.

President Tinubu has expressed confidence in Engr. Woke’s ability to leverage his extensive experience as both an engineer and administrator to effectively steer the operations at NOSDRA towards success.

Notably, Engr. Woke shares a close political alliance with Barrister Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, further underscoring his deep-rooted connections within the political landscape.
