Bakare-Oki Replaces Oreagba As LASTMA GM



There is a change of guard at the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA). Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu yesterday named Olalekan Bakare-Oki as Acting General Manager.

Bakare-Oki’s  appointment was announced in a statement by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Transportation, Olawale Musa.

No reason was given for the exit of the former GM – Bolaji Oreagba. But the permanent secretary noted that Bakare-Oki  was appointed in order to reposition the agency.

The statement reads: “The appointment of Bakare-Oki is for better performance, eradicating incidences of misdemeanours among staff and continued efficient/effective traffic management on Lagos roads.”

Bakare-Oki, who joined the Lagos State Public Service on April 25, 2000, rose through the ranks over the years to the post of Deputy Director, Logistics and Engineering Department of LASTMA, before his elevation.

He holds a Master’s degree in Transportation,  Planning and Management from the University of Lagos (UNILAG) and has attended several capacity-building programmes on inter-modal traffic management systems locally and internationally.

Musa urged him to justify the governor’s confidence in his appointment by rising up to the occasion, while utilising his wealth of experience to take the Agency to greater heights.

The permanent secretary also conveyed the appreciation and gratitude of the governor to the former general manager for his commitment, dedication and meritorious service to the state.
