The Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Dayo Mobereola, said that no fewer than 100 officials of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) were dismissed in the last one year.
Mobereola said this while responding to questions from journalists at the ongoing annual ministerial briefing holding in Ikeja to mark one year of Gov. Akinwumi Ambode’s assumption of office.
The commissioner said that the officials were dismissed for various unpardonable offences bordering on unethical conducts.
“Up to 100 LASTMA staff members have been dismissed while many were demoted,” he said.
Mobereola, however, said that the state government had trained and retrained several LASTMA officials for effective service delivery.
He advised LASTMA officials to carry out their duties within the law and shun every tendency to extort money from motorists in the state.
