Former Chairman of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) Lagos council, Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya aka MC Oluomo has said that his dismissal and dissolution of the council’s executive by the National Administrative Council (NAC) is a joke.
The dissolution statement was jointly signed by NURTW National President, Alhaji Tajudeen Baruwa, and General Secretary, Alhaji Kabiru Ado Ya’u.
Lagos State Council Secretary, Seyi Bankole was also announced as the new head of NURTW in Lagos.
The embattled former NURTW leader who has now reacted to his sack, stated that it is laughable as all the union members in the state have pulled out of the national body.
MC Oluomo maintained that his earlier suspension was unconstitutional and further added that the dissolution has no effect because the activity of the state council has been suspended by the Lagos State government.
He also asked why the NURTW President is acting outside the constitution and hell-bent on destroying the union activities in Lagos just as he did in some states in the Southwest.
Urging members of the union in the state to remain calm, he added that the union members are waiting for the announcement of the Lagos State government on the appointment of park managers in the state.
Oluomo told The Nation;
“That is part of the maladministration of the President that we talked about in our former briefings; the dissolution doesn’t make any sense. However, people must know that we do not have any problem with the national body but the President.
“We’ll be waiting to see how the person appointed to run the affairs of the union will act. The union has already been suspended. Is the national body saying they are more powerful than the state government? Announcing the sack of people already pulled out of the national body is a joke and laughable”
