Lagos Governor blasts LASTMA officials

There has been some improvement in the traffic situation, but we will not stop at that. We will finish the road constructions soon and fix the pot-holes to ease traffic.

 

Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, while appointing the new boss for the state Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), Chris Olape, said the body is not discharging its duties effectively.

Ambode in a statement said "to appoint Olakpe as the LASTMA CEO was further said to have been necessitated owing to the fact that the impetus expected with the previous appointment was not fully actualised due to the docile nature of the headship of the authority.”

Adding that ‘some new projects going on in the Victoria Island, is contributing to the traffic situation. There has been some improvement in the traffic situation, but we will not stop at that. We will finish the road constructions soon and fix the pot-holes to ease traffic.’
