Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has said the importance of efficient planning and allocation of resources in any organised society cannot be underestimated and should be taken with all seriousness.

He said that the creation of Lagos State Residents’ Registration Agency (LASRRA) is for data capturing, which would later be translated to building database of people who reside in Lagos.

A statement by Head, Public Affairs Unit, LASRRA, Ajoke Lawal, noted that Sanwo-Olu made this known in Lagos through the General Manager, Engr. (Mrs.) Ibilola Kasunmu at a fact finding meeting with all the DivisionalSupervisors and Station Managers of Local Council Development Areas, held on Monday, 30th September, 2019 at the Office premises. The meeting did not leave out the Mobile Team.
Engr. (Mrs.) Kasunmu reiterated that the Governor is poised to “walk his talk”on allocation of resources and support for demographic planning in Lagos State.
To this end, she said, she would appreciate the cooperation of all staff of the Agency to achieving this.

She further said, LASRRA is Information Technology based and as such, the staff should be ready to move with time. In her words; “The process of data capturing will be updated and upgraded, it is important for us all to embrace change and follow the pace, for the only thing that is constant in life is change and we should all be ready to accept and adjust to it so that we can as a fortified team achieve success”.
She implored the Supervisors, Station Managers and Mobile Team to work hardso as to achieving good result.

She also did not hesitate to state that all should work as a team. “Reinforce those that are lagging behind, share what you know and don’t try to shine alone” she concluded.

However, all the Divisional Heads; Ikorodu, Badagry, Ikeja, Lagos Island and Epe and Station Managers were quick to identify what their issues are and how the Agency could be of help. This, the General Manager said, was the purpose for the meeting.

In appreciation, one of the Supervisors; Ajayi Abiodun from Ikeja Local Government Division on behalf of others, appreciated the General Manager for holding the long awaited meeting. He also acknowledged the enthusiasm expressed by Engr. (Mrs.) Kasunmu to move the Agency forward.

They promised to put in their best and make sure that the kind gesture in which the Agency was set up by the Government is realized optimally.
