Officials of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) have asked residents of Lagos to forgive the agency for maltreating them over the years.

In a video recording, some officials of the agency were filmed dancing to the rhythm of a song “ewe orijin laja, eni aba se ko firijin wa”, meaning “whoever we must have offended, please forgive us.”

At the event, the officers who were seen wearing uniform and others on casual, bowed as a sign of begging for mercy.

Some civil servants in Lagos have alleged that they were threatened that they could lose their jobs if they refused to re-elect the incumbent governor. 

However, Gboyega Akosile, media aide to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, debunked the news on his social media page.

Mr Sanwo-Olu of the All Progressives Congress, will on March 18 contest for the governorship of Lagos with the Labour Party’s Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, Funso Doherty of Africa Democratic Congress and Abdulazeez Adediran of the Peoples Democratic Party, as well as 11 others. Copied from gazette.com
