Lagos State governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode yesterday approved the appointment of Mr. Hakeem Olaogun Dickson as the new Director General of Lagos State Safety Commission.
The governor in a statement signed by the state Head of Service, Mrs. Olabowale Ademola, said Dickson’s appointment was in line with his administration’s commitment to turn around the agency for optimal performance.
Ambode urged Dickson to bring his political clout and experience at work and construction projects to bear on the mandate of the Lagos State Safety Commission, the agency saddled with the responsibility of safety regulations and enforcement in the state.
Dickson holds a Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Arts from the Thomas A. Edison State College, Trenton, New Jersey U.S.A and two Masters Degrees in Business Administration specializing in Accounting and Finance respectively, both from the Fairleight Dickinson University, Rutherford, New Jersey, U.S.A.
He was an internal Auditor at the now defunct Nigeria Airways before his overseas experience as Staff Accountant/External Auditor/ Tax Adviser.
