According to him, the visit was done in preparation of an oversight function that would be carried out in the next few days, adding that “the House has received a number of petitions on the activities of LAMATA which the committee would have to verify.”


Mojeed added that apart from the scorecard, the committee also wishes to know if there were challenges facing the company, saying the House is ready to intervene in order to better the service rendered by the Authority.


In his reaction, LAMATA Acting Managing Director, Iyiola Adegboye recalled that during military regime in 1992 there was a collaboration with world Bank on a master plan to work out a model of transportation for Lagos.


According to him, by 1996, the framework which was put in place was not executed until when the former Governor of the State, Bola Tinubu came to office, adding that in 2002 Tinubu signed the Lagos Urban Transport Project (LUTP) which represents the flagship for efficient delivery of acceptable means of transportation.


Adegboye explained that LAMATA was therefore to operate as a semi-autonomous organization to militate against bureaucratic bottlenecks, saying “over the last 20 years LAMATA has become a nobel institution.”


The MD however appealed to the House to come up with appropriate law that would assist the organization to add more values to transportation efficiency in the state.


While expressing delight over the committee’s visit, the Managing Director promised to avail the House with details of its activities whenever the committee comes for the oversight appraisal.
