The Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode has sacked the General Manager of the Lagos State Building Control Agency, Adeigbe Olushola, and three others following the Lekki building collapse that killed 35 people last week.

Apart from Olushola, Ambode approved the dismissal of the Head of Inspection and Quality Control in the agency, Adeoye Adeyemi; the Zonal District Officer in the agency, Dosunmu Gbadebo; while the Zonal Head of Eti-Osa West of the agency, Mrs. Akinde Sherifat, was compulsorily retired from the civil service.

A statement by the Lagos State Head of Service, Mrs. Olabowale Ademola, quoted the governor as saying the affected officers were dismissed after they were indicted for negligence.

According to him, negligence is an act of misconduct under the Public Service Rule 040401.

“Rule 040401 of the Public Service act of misconduct states that “A willful act of omission or general misconduct to the scandal of the pubic or to the prejudice of discipline and proper administration of the state Government” should be visited with dismissal from the public service in line with the Public Service Rule 040503,” the statement said.

The Head of Service said the disciplinary measure was the outcome of the recommendations of the Personnel Management Board to Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, who was personally grieved by the number of lives lost in the building collapse.
