Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has approved the assignment of Bolaji Oreagba as General Manager of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA).
Leakblast.com reports that this was disclosed in a statement in Tuesday by the Head of Service, Hakeem Muri-Okunola.
Oreagba would be taking over from the outgoing LASTMA General Manager, Olajide Oduyoye.
According to Muri-Okunola, the new general manager is expected to ensure efficient and effective traffic management on Lagos roads.
He charged Oreagba to justify his elevation by Governor Sanwo-Olu by using his experience to take the agency to greater heights.
Muri-Okunola thanked the outgoing General Manager for his dedication to duty and service to Lagos.
The new GM, a Deputy Controller (Traffic), joined the State Public Service on the 8th December 1993 and rose through the ranks to become LASTMA Director of Operations.
Oreagba holds a Master’s Degree in Transport Planning & Management and attended capacity-building programmes on inter-modal traffic management systems locally and internationally.
Meanwhile, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has denied reports that he is planning to contest the 2023 Lagos governorship election.
Leakblast.com reports that reports had emerged claiming that the nation’s number four citizen was eyeing the Lagos governorship seat.
But the lawmaker has stated that contesting the 2023 guber polls in the Southwest state is not something that has crossed his mind.
Gbajabiamila told Channels Television that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu was doing a great job running the state.
According to the Speaker, planning to contest in the election would only be a distraction from his current position as the speaker of the house of reps
