Lagos Business School recently conducted a Utility Pricing and Regulation Programme for the staff of the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA).
This programme was facilitated in response to the need for credible and fair sustainable regulatory arrangements of utility infrastructure in the country. Ikechukwu Kelikume, Programme Academic Director, stated that the programme equipped participants with a comprehensive understanding of the key elements involved in Utility Regulation and Management. He further noted that the programme enhanced the participants’ ability to effectively perform regulatory functions at the interface of government, the private sector, the public, and other interest groups which are key factors that influence the implementation of reforms and the sustainability of regulatory arrangements.
Participants in attendance were satisfied with the knowledge they gleaned from the programme. Uthman Obafemi Shitta-Bey said “This was a very useful and informative programme, which will no doubt enhance LAMATA’s institutional capacity on regulatory issues”.
Seun Sonoiki, Legal Counsel, LAMATA said she is very eager to positively impact her organisation with the knowledge she has gained. “I have enjoyed the programme and gained more knowledge particularly in the regulatory roles of my organisation. I am very eager to impact positively on my organisation with what I have learnt. The programme has been extremely useful; I hope to be back for more impactful sessions in the near future. I commend the Lagos Business School (LBS) for all its efforts”.
