Tinubu Appoints Emeka Woke, Former Rivers Commissioner and Ex-Chief of Staff to Wike.

President Bola Tinubu has made a significant appointment in the realm of water resource management in Nigeria by appointing Emeka Woke as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Ogun-Osun River Basin Development Authority. Woke, known for his close ties with FCT minister Nyesom Wike, brings a wealth of experience to this crucial role.

Woke’s previous roles, including serving as Wike’s Chief of Staff during his tenure as Governor and later as Commissioner for Special Projects under Governor Sim Fubara, underscore his extensive background in governance and administration.

His appointment to lead the Ogun-Osun River Basin Development Authority signals a strategic move by President Tinubu to leverage Woke’s expertise in advancing water resource management initiatives.


The Ogun-Osun River Basin Development Authority holds a pivotal position in the management and development of water resources within its jurisdiction, covering parts of Ogun and Osun states in southwestern Nigeria. With water being a critical resource for agricultural, industrial, and environmental purposes, Woke is expected to spearhead efforts aimed at harnessing the region’s water potential while ensuring sustainable management practices.

President Tinubu’s decision to appoint Emeka Woke is widely perceived as a move to strengthen his political alliance with Nyesom Wike. Wike, a prominent figure in Nigerian politics, has been embroiled in a public feud with his successor and incumbent governor of Rivers state, Sim Fubara. By appointing Woke, who has strong ties to Wike, Tinubu is signaling his commitment to consolidating alliances and fostering cooperation within the political landscape.

As Emeka Woke assumes his new role, all eyes will be on him to deliver on the mandate of the Ogun-Osun River Basin Development Authority, driving forward initiatives that promote sustainable water management and contribute to the socio-economic development of the region.
