President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the appointment of Mohammed Bello-Koko as the substantive Managing Director for the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA).
The federal ministry of transportation disclosed this on Tuesday in a circular signed by Eric Ojiekwe, Director, Press and Public Relations.
“Prior to this appointment, Bello-Koko was the executive director, finance & administration of NPA,” the statement added.
Bello-Koko was on May 6, 2021 made the acting managing director of NPA when Hadiza Bala Usman was directed to handover to the most senior Executive Director after she was suspended for alleged insubordination.
Prior to the appointment as acting MD, Bello-Koko was the Executive Director, Finance & Administration of the Authority. His appointment as substantive MD takes immediate effect.
