Lagos State Government Sacks 157 LASTMA Officials.

157 officials of the Lagos State Transport Monitoring Agency (LASTMA) have been fired by the government for gross misconduct.

The officers were reportedly dismissed due to various offenses committed ranging from bribery, certificate forgery, and dereliction of duty.

The government made this decision public in a government newsletter obtained on Monday in Ikeja.

It said its action followed due process as all the officers affected were given an opportunity to defend themselves and prove their innocence before a disciplinary committee.

About 250 officers of the traffic agency were dismissed in a similar manner  last year in a bid to sanitize the authority.

The state Commissioner for Transportation, Kayode Opeifa, had said on Friday that the government would not spare efforts to remove bad eggs in the organisation. (YNaija!)
