The Lagos State Traffic Management Agency (LASTMA) has trained traffic officers in seven states across the federation.

This, according to the government, was in accordance with its age-long tradition of brotherhood, support, and cooperation with sister states.

The states include Delta, Ogun, Oyo, Ekiti, Kwara and Rivers.

According to a statement signed by the Head, Public Affairs (LASTMA) Mamud Hasan, the Agency has moved some of its officers to other states.

Mr Yekeen Babatunde Bello is now heading the Kwara State Road Traffic Management Authority (KWARTMA), while Mr Femi Falade is in charge of the Oyo State Road Traffic Management Authority (OYRTMA).

In Delta, Ogun, Ekiti and Rivers States, LASTMA officials also carried out intensive training for traffic officers in a bid to acclimatise them to international best practices so as to make them more efficient and service-driven.

Meanwhile, Lagos State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode at the weekend approved the release of Dennis Oloriegbe of LASTMA to Edo State to assume office as Managing Director of that state’s Traffic Management Agency.

Oloriegbe’s release was sequel to the request of the Edo State Government for him to come and re-engineer, package and position the Edo State traffic outfit in accordance with the best global practices and also replicate the success story of LASTMA.

In addition, Governor Ambode also approved the training of officers of the Edo State Traffic Management Agency by LASTMA officials.

Before his appointment, Oloriegbe was the Chief instructor and head of the Lagos State Drivers’ Institute (LASDRI), Ikeja centre. He joined the service of LASTMA in 2000 and served in various capacities meritoriously to become a Zonal head, where he supervised and managed activities of over one hundred traffic officials successfully.

Because of his dedication to duty, astute knowledge, skills, and penchant for finding human and mechanical solutions to chronic traffic problems, Oloriegbe was seconded to the Lagos State Drivers’ Institute as one of the foundation staff and pioneer instructor.

He later became the head of the Ikeja Training Institute.

The Edo State-bound Oloriegbe is a consummate reader, excellent communicator and writer of many books on traffic control and management, and safe driving. During his tenure in the service of LASTMA, he demonstrated management acumen in handling human and material resources under him.

Responding to the development, LASTMA’s General Manager, Mr Olawale Musa expressed his appreciation on behalf of the agency to Oloriegbe and wished him the best in his new assignment and other future endeavours. (Channels TV)
