As an Agency striving to meet its role in the THEMES Agenda of the Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu Administration, the Agency will not condone any form of indiscipline or actions capable of bringing it to disrepute, while it will as a socially responsible management give the Officers the opportunity for fair hearing.
