The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority has confirmed the dismissal of five officers and reprimanded two for being guilty of corruption and misconduct while performing their duties in the state.

According to the statement, the Lagos State Civil Service Commission had approved every proposal the Personnel Management Board had made about the seven LASTMA officers who had been indicted during their meeting on Tuesday, August 19, 2023.

Taofiq said, “While five LASTMA officials indicted for corruption received a letter of termination of appointment’, remaining two  received a letter of ‘reprimand’ for absence from duty posts without leave.”

Taofiq quoted the agency’s acting General Manager, Bakare Oki, as saying that the disciplinary action that was taken, was according to the Lagos State Civil Service Rules and Regulations.

He added that the public’s sharing of experiences, both positive and negative, and the provision of relevant evidence regarding alleged misdemeanours would be necessary for the agency to improve.

He pleaded with Lagos drivers to always abide by the state traffic law to avoid breaking the law and facing the penalties that are stipulated in the legislation while assuring the public that these complaints would be looked into quickly and impartially.
