The Deputy Director, Corporate Communications, LAMATA, Mr Kola Ojelabi, who debunked the report in a statement, warned members of the public not to fall victim to scammers.

LAMATA caveat emptor

Ojelabi, in a swift reaction, stated: “It comes to the notice of the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA) that some persons are using the name of our organisation for the recruitment of drivers for Mini Buses.

“The public is hereby notified that LAMATA is not a transport operating company and therefore does not need to recruit drivers for transport operations.

As an agency of Lagos State Government, our role is to plan transport projects as detailed in the State’s Strategic Transport Master Plan (STMP), implement, regulate and franchise public transport operations.

“Members of the public are therefore cautioned not to fall prey to scammers.”
