Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode on Tuesday approved the appointment of Mr. Hakeem Olaogun Dickson as the new Director General of Lagos State Safety Commission.
In a statement signed by the State Head of Service, Mrs. Olabowale Ademola, the Governor said Dickson’s appointment was in line with his administration’s commitment to turn around the agency for optimal performance.
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 at the Coopers and Lybrand CPA, Newark, New Jersey U.S.A.
He then returned to the country to contest and won an election as the Executive Chairman of the Surulere Local Government between 1988 and 1994. He is currently the C.E.O of Citiwide Construction and Transport Nigeria Limited which specializes in the construction of roads and buildings.
Governor Ambode urged Dickson to bring his political clout and experience in the importance and safety practices especially 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.
His appointment is however subject to the approval of the Lagos State House of Assembly.
