Lagos Sacks 174 LASTMA Officials by Maxymilliano(m): 7:37pm On Dec 17, 2012
Lagos Sacks 174 LASTMA Officials.

The Lagos State Government has sacked 174 officers of the State Traffic Management Authority, LASTMA, for their alleged involvement in corruption, overzealousness and others.

The sack is said to be a move to weed out bad eggs and reposition the authority for better service delivery and traffic management.

P.M.NEWS authoritatively gathered that 34 LASTMA officers were sacked two months ago over cases of corruption, fraud, overzealousness, among others.

The affected officers had their pictures and names published in the in-house journal of the state government, Alausa Alert, while the public were warned not to do business with the affected officers as they had been relieved of their posts.

Also two months ago, LASTMA recommended 200 officers for dismissal and their names were forwarded to the Civil Service Commission to determine their fate after the affected officers had faced the Personnel Management Board, PMB, a disciplinary organ of the state government.
In the last one week, 140 LASTMA officers have received their letters of sack from the Civil Service Commission after they were found wanting in the prosecution of their jobs.

P.M.NEWS ’ investigation revealed that most ofthe LASTMA personnel sacked were junior officers who had been enmeshed in fraudulent acts, indiscipline, dereliction of duty, extortionof money from motorists, among others.

The state government warned that it would not tolerate acts of indiscipline from LASTMA officers and would not hesitate to wield the bigstick on those found wanting, just as it had done to the affected officers.

Head of Service, Adesegun Ogunlewe had said that any LASTMA officer found extorting money from motorists in the guise of the new road traffic law would be dismissed outright as prescribed by the law.

He warned that government would not condone acts of corruption among its officers as transparency and accountability were the keys of governance and public officers must not paint government bad to the public.

General Manager, LASTMA, Babatunde Edu had been canvassing for improved service delivery by officers of the authority, saying that government would sack officers found to be corrupt in the discharge of their duties.

Urging the public to always report cases of corruption, overzealousness, indiscipline among LASTMA officers to the authority for appropriate disciplinary measures, Edu said once a report about a LASTMA officer was made to the authority, such officer would be investigated and if found guilty, the law would take its course.

Chairman, LASTMA, Young Arabamen also said that several officers of the authority had been dismissed in the past for involvement in corruption and indiscipline.

He warned LASTMA officers to stay away from graft and carry out their duties in a professional manner.

Don't you just love the LASG? The only government in Nigeria that seems to have a structure

With all the NPF's atrocities, how often do you hear them sack just one of their officers

Most LASTMA officials I encounter have been very courteous and even on one occasion when had to scream at one, he remained calm

Apart from being human beings, what qualification do these LASTMA officials have? I think the LASG should start looking the way of graduates especially from Lagos state owned institutions. That way, the number of touts in uniform will reduce to the barest minimum.

You could give only one instance of misdemeanor while the LASG has sacked 174. Has this ever happened in the NPF despite their daily atrocities? Give it up to the LASG. They may not be perfect but they are unarguably the best as this should send signals to the rest of them.
