As part of the efforts to encourage and motivate workers, the Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has announced a 100 percent increase in the allowances of Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA).
Naija News understands that the state Governor made this known of Friday, June 14 during an interactive session with staff of the agency.
Naija News was informed that the plan by the state Governor to look into the welfare of the officials is in line with his vision to make traffic management and transportation number one priority in his administration.
He said the gesture is also to help motivate the workers to be committed to their duties as they storm the Lagos roads day and night to rid the State of traffic gridlocks.
“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”, Sanwo-Olu said.
