According to the Head of Service, Mr Hakeem Muri-Okunola, who confirmed this development in a statement on Monday, Mr Odumboni’s appointment was approved by the Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
The statement said Mr Odumboni’s appointment showed the Governor’s confidence in his capabilities and demonstrated the administration’s commitment to quality service delivery, considering particularly his contributions to the growth of the agency as part of its management in his previous position.
While noting that the outgoing Managing Director had built a strong and highly motivated team in LAWMA and laid an enduring foundation for reforms in the Organisation, Mr Muri-Okunola the outgone MD/CEO for his visionary leadership during his tenure of office.
He congratulated the new Managing Director and urged him to focus on improving service quality, adding that waste management and environmental sustainability are critical to all other aspects of the T.H.E.M.E.S Agenda – the government’s six development pillars – of the present Administration and, as such, a lot is expected of the new LAWMA CEO.
