LAWMA Reengages All Sweepers of Sacked Contractors, Denies Owing Salaries

 

The Lagos State Waste Management Agency (LAWMA) has initiated moves to re-engage road sweepers whose jobs were put at risk by the termination of the contract of some LAWMA contractors over fraudulent activities.

 

This was disclosed to BlackBox Nigeria by a reliable source at the waste management body. 

The source told BlackBox Nigeria that all those working with the sacked contractors have been re-engaged to work directly with LAWMA while other Contractors have been redeployed to routes previously managed by the sacked Contractors.

 

”Many of those who work with the sacked contractors have been re-engaged to work directly with LAWMA, all of the Sweepers now have a single uniform, ” she said.

Asked about the main reason behind the sacking of Contractors, the source told BlackBox Nigeria that they were told to submit a comprehensive list of their staff but most failed to do so because of their fraudulent activities.

 

”They were asked to submit their list of staff for audit but some refused. LAWMA then decided to conduct an independent audit using an audit firm only to discover many of the staff getting paid where ghost,”

 

On the issue of owing salaries, she reaffirmed that the salary for the month of May has already been paid while June is yet to end.

 

In recent time, LAWMA, a government of Lagos State body responsible for managing waste generated in Lagos state through a waste collection, transportation and disposal structure has come under media attention following a viral video that the waste management body is owing three months salary.
