Ambode sacks Arabamen, appoints ex-AIG new LASTMA Boss

Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, on Monday approved the appointment of a retired Assistant Inspector General of Police, Mr. Christian Akioja Olakpe as the new Chief Executive Officer of Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA).

The appointment of Olakpe, according to a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Habib Aruna, is in strong response to complaints by the public on the situation of traffic on the roads.

The government said the appointment is meant to revamp the LASTMA for improved performance and better relations with the public and the state, adding that Olakpe’s wealth of experience was required for the job.

Olakpe is a graduate of Sociology and Anthropology from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka and the National Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies, Kuru, Jos.

He joined the Nigeria Police Force in 1982 and traversed various commands including Bayelsa and Plateau where he served as Commissioner of Police.
