Mohammed Bello-Koko NPA MD

Mohammed Bello-Koko has been appointed the substantive managing director of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA).

NPA spokesman Ibrahim Nasiru confirmed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Tuesday.

President Muhammadu Buhari had on May 6, 2021, appointed Bello-Koko as acting managing director of NPA when Hadiza 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 and administration of the NPA.

His appointment as substantive MD takes immediate effect.
