Biography Of Musa Wada: Kogi PDP Governorship Flagbearer 2019 by lovesamzy: 6:00am On Sep 05
A Brief Profile of Engr. Musa Wada, PhD, FNIS


Engr. Musa Wada, PhD, FNIS was born on the 17th of May into the family deeply attached to Moslem values. Through his parents but predominantly by self-effort he “discovered” the need and purpose for an exemplary life. He is an individual who has continual growth and transformation at the heart of his strategic decisions and actions and like an athlete, he always looked forward to better his time; his life reflects a relentless drive to keep the flames of self-renewal burning. He is one of Nigeria’s foremost engineers.

Stoic perseverance in the face of adversity as well as unobtrusiveness in situations where others would capitulate are among the guiding principles and indeed the staying power of Engr. Musa Wada. From the onset, Musa Wada knew that success was not going to come easily, and was also convinced that for him to succeed, hard-work must be his watch-word. This was a principle he guarded zealously. And, today, those virtues are speaking loudly for him .

Engr. Musa Wada, as he is popularly known and called, is an indigene of Odu in Dekina Local Government Area of Kogi State. Born into the family of Alh. Wada, his mother Hajia Awawo hails from Idah Local Government Area of Kogi State. He attended LGEA Primary School, Okura-Olafia and Government Secondary School, Dekina before proceeding to the School of Basic Studies at Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.

He had his first degree B.Sc in Building from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria and his second degree M.Sc in Transport from Ogun State University (now Olabisi Onabanjo University). He has a Postgraduate Diploma (PGD) in Civil Engineering from the Federal University of Technology, Akure and a doctorate degree (PhD) in Environmental Science from the University of Calabar, Nigeria.

A Fellow of the Nigerian Institute of Shipping, Engr. Musa Wada is a Member of several professional bodies. They include the Nigerian Society of Engineers, Institute of Building, amongst others. He is an Officer of Igala Kingdom (OIK).

Engr. Musa Wada has been an Engineer all through his life. He has been with the Engineering Division of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) and rose to become the Chief Port Engineer, Tin-Can Island Port between 2004 and 2007, where he was in charge of the general monitoring, overseeing and maintenance of the Tin-Can Island Port facilities and equipments. His overwhelming performance, show of trust and display of true patriotism while in Tin-Can Island Port Complex lead to the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) management board entrusting him with the responsibility of overseeing the Capital Project of NPA Headquarters with his appointment as a Principal Manager, Capital Project of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) Headquarters in Lagos.

Engr. Musa Wada is one of those men who have the tenacity to always do better than their last achievement. This is a very remarkable trait because when one is complacent, true success cannot be achieved. He has the uncommon wisdom to continue growing in the face of challenges and changing circumstances and each victory created the zeal and hunger for further successes.

When the news of his appointment as Port Manager, Calabar Port Complex broke out in January 2013, it did not come to many as a surprise, particularly those in the maritime sector of the Nigerian economy, because providence has its way of rewarding hardwork and doggedness in service which Engr. Musa Wada has severally exhibited all these years in the service of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), show of true patriotism and commitment to the development of the Nigerian state. Between January 2013 and April 2015, Engr. Musa Wada was saddled with the responsibility of overseeing the day to day running of the Calabar Port Complex, ensuring good, proper and timely policies formulation and implementation for effective service delivery to the maritime sector players. This lead to a positive turnaround at the Port Complex within his short period as Port Manager.

With his great achievement and record in Calabar Port Complex, the decision of the NPA Management Board to post him to Onne Port Complex, Portharcourt in April 2015 was an easy one. He was to replicate his administrative and managerial skills while in Calabar Port Complex as Port Manager in Onne Port Complex, before a higher duty call in September, 2015. This is coming just five month into his appointment as Port Manager, Onne Port Complex. His next duty call was his appointment as the Managing Director, Seaview Properties Limited by the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) management board. Seaview Properties Limited is a subsidiary of NPA.

These appointments/promotions, and his current appointment as the Managing Director, Seaview Properties Limited, no doubt, are an eloquent testimony to his unflinching hard-work and vivid affirmation to his verifiable commitment to the growth and development of Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), the maritime sector of the Nigerian economy and the Nigeria state in general.

Engr. Musa Wada’s ideas and innovative contributions have translated to the rapid transformation of Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) and the maritime sector of the Nigerian economy. He has proved that he is a bridge builder and committed to the development of the Nigerian state. He is a very dynamic and energetic person, someone that looks directly into future. He has always projected himself as a visionary leader who is desirous of putting his people on the fast lane of development and progress.

Furthermore, amiable Musa Wada is indeed a man of purpose, vision, strength and character, whose one goal in life is to bring liberation, respect and succor to people he crossed paths with. He has the uncommon wisdom to continue growing in the face of challenges and changing circumstances and each victory created the zeal and hunger for further successes.

Dr. Musa Wada blends personal humility with inspired standards while allowing no room for mediocrity in any form. Always averse to putting on self-importance airs, he abhors undue status. He is forward thinking, stretching himself to the limits on issues that bother on faith, work and posterity while seeking to expand the horizons of knowledge. He is the personification of that leader, who inspires by his abiding passion for excellence in every aspect of life, passion matched only by an intense pathological will to positively impact his society.

Most importantly is the fact that as successful as he has made it in life, his inherent nature of humility, graciousness and kindness has never diminished. Rather, he has used each level of success as an excuse to futher extend his graces.

Engr. Musa Wada is a Member of several Professional and academic bodies in Nigeria and beyond. He has won numerous awards over the years in recognition of his meritorious and excellent performance in his services to the public and private sectors of the Nigerian Economy and in his wonderful and selfless services to the needy populace, the physically challenged and the underserved, where he has touched lives tremendously.

God Almighty has a purpose for his life; it’s no accident that he is from IGALA speaking area. Alhaji Musa Wada is here by God’s choosing. He was born at this time in history to fulfill His purpose for Igala nation and our generation. The beauty of life does not depend on how happy you are, but on how happy others can be because of you. The greatest joy is having the passion and ability to add value to people in a manner that supports their journeys in life. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the expression of joy on people’s faces after assisting them in a venture, and the pride that it was done with no expectation from them.

Dr. Musa Wada is one of the Igala most iconic faces and philanthropist per excellence. In the spirit of a candle loses nothing when it lights another candle, several students have benefited from his educational scholarships to Igala sons and daughters and non-Igalas, where he has sponsored a number of students throughout their undergraduate bachelors degree programs in the Nigerian universities, National Diploma programs in Polytechnics as well as NCE Programs in Colleges of Education across the federation between 2005 and 2018.

Engr. Musa Wada is a ‘consider it done person’ and a sticker for proper etiquette and ethics in both his private and corporate life. He is an astute thinker and articulate leader. In the corporate field, he has assisted several into getting a source of livelihood. Naturally, he is kind-hearted. He is someone you go to for a solution to a problem and you are sure of leaving his presence with a positive look on your face. He is someone to always wish to be with. Despite the foregoing, he hardly compromises his lofty values and always preach against social vices. His frowning at immorality has never been in doubt.

He is by birth an ardent Muslim and a giver to the core. His generousity knows no bound. A friend to many friends and a father to the needy, the fatherless and widows are testifiers to this effect both home and abroad. He is an inducted Member of Igala Icons Nationwide & in Diaspora.

He is well traveled. Engr. Musa Wada is happily married with children. His philosophy of life is “Live and let others live”. In his philosophy, you can never be too successful to remember God, and that you should always treat those who are not in the same level as you with persistent and unprecedented acts of kindness. Being a good person requires that you must tolerate not only those who are good to you, but also those who are unjust towards you.

Victory will come if he engages others who contested the pdp ticket with him.
The slight reservation I have about him is that he is a appears to be a government person and does not have much of a private sector experience except doing government jobs or contracts.

PDP fielded this guy because he is young and also a loyal man to his inlaw who happens to be the godfather( Ibrahim Idris) of PDP in Kogi State


The godfather ( Ibrahim Idris) didn't back the senior Wada (Idris wada) because he thinks he can't be loyal when he get to office cheesy cuz he's not going to recontest as governor again since that would be his final term in office and he may likely want to plant his own successor
