Officers of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) are to enjoy increment in their allowances.
The development was disclosed by Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Friday during an interactive section with officials of the traffic agency.
“As from the end of the month of July, we shall increase your allowances by 100 per cent. That means if you are collecting N5,000 as your allowance , it would be increased to N10, 000. Those collecting N10,000 before would now be getting N20,000. This would enable you perform optimally. To whom much is given, much is expected,” the governor said at the meeting to motivate the agency’s personnel.
He also ordered government owned hospitals in the state to offer free medical service to LASTMA officers.
