The National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) has lifted the suspension placed on the Lagos State Park Management Chairman, Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya (MC Oluomo) and other members.
The lifting of the suspension was announced by the newly inaugurated National President of the NURTW, Alhaji Tajudeen Agbede, while giving his inaugural address in Abuja.
Alhaji Tajudeen described the suspension on MC Oluomo and others as disuniting as he claims the previous administration led by Alhaji Tajudeen Ibikunle Baruwa, made the decision out of enmity.
He further stated that MC Oluomo in particular was treated badly and unfairly, thus begging him to return to the union.
In his words: “One of the main problems created by Baruwa was the arbitrary suspension and expulsion of members perceived as his enemies.
“Through this has destroyed the union, especially in the southwest. So, I, Alhaji Tajudeen Agbede, on behalf of other members of my executive, leaders and members of our union throughout the country, hereby lift the illegal suspension of our esteemed members throughout the country.
“Of particular concern is the suspension of Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya, the Lagos state chairman of our union. He was unfairly treated by Alhaji Baruwa. It was a pure case of misuse of power. We hereby appeal to Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya to come back home. NURTW is one big family and that is where you belong,” he said.
Speaking on his plans, the newly inaugurated president stated that his administration is ready to cooperate and collaborate with the federal and state governments in order to bring the union back on track.
“By the special grace of God, we shall be meeting all the governors in southwest for discussion on how to work together. We will cooperate with them in Oyo, Ogun,O Lagos,Ondo and Ekiti to get our union back on track. It is a new dawn in NURTW.”
“I have worked with Asiwaju Bola Tinubu before and it was beneficial so now that we are both at the national level we shall replicate some things we did in Lagos. For instance, we took part in the success story of BRT program and some of LAMATA projects. We shall replicate the same thing at the federal level,” he stated.
