The Commissioner for Special Duties and Intergovernmental Relations in Lagos State, Mr Paul Omotayo Bamgbose-Martins, has been redeployed to the Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development.
This followed a minor reshuffling of the cabinet by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State and the resignation of the Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Mr Idris Salako, a few days ago.
He tendered his resignation after a seven-storey building under construction in the Victoria Island area of the metropolis collapsed, killing about six people.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Gbenga Omotosho, said the new Physical Planning Commissioner is an astute Civil Engineer with over 33 years of professional experience as a public servant.
He has served the Lagos State Government in various capacities, such as Area/Resident Engineer, Director of Planning and Design, General Manager of the Lagos State Ferry Services, Executive Secretary and Vice Chairman of the Lagos State Roads, Bridges and Highway Infrastructure Private Sector Participation (PSP) Board.
He rose through the public service ranks to become a Permanent Secretary in 2005. He headed at different times, the Ministry of Rural Infrastructure, Ministry of Housing and Ministry of Works and Infrastructure from where he retired in 2015.
After retirement, he engaged himself in various consultancy services and project development until 2018 when he joined BOS/KOH Team as a member of the Strategic Economy Committee and then later a member of the Transition Committee during which he was Team Lead for the Transport and Traffic Management Subcommittee.
Mr Bamgbose-Martins was born on June 3, 1957, in Lagos and had his primary education at St. Mary’s Private School, Lagos in 1969. He attended St. Gregory’s College, Lagos for his secondary education, which he completed in 1974. He obtained his Bachelor of Science (B.Sc Hons) in Civil Engineering from the University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University) and a Master of Science Degree (MSc.) in Civil Engineering from the University of Lagos, majoring in Highways/Transportation.

“This is a prelude to the restructuring of the Ministry and its agencies.
“Governor Sanwo-Olu thanks the Commissioner for his services to the state and wishes him success in his future endeavours.
“The Governor warns all players in the sector to respect the law or face the consequences of any indiscretion, no matter who the perpetrators are,” the statement said.
Lagos State has recently witnessed the collapse of buildings, especially under construction and these have raised concerns over the ability of the government to regulate the sector.
