Lagos state chapter of the National Union of Road Transport Workers’ (NURTW) chairman, Musiliu Akinsanya, aka MC Oluomo, has been suspended indefinitely over alleged gross misconduct, and insubordination capable of causing unrest in the state.
MC Oluomo, who has been earlier issued letters of queries by the national union, was accused of not giving satisfactory answers to the two queries that were initially given to him.
Consequently, the letter of indefinite suspension, dated Wednesday March 9, 2022, signed by the General Secretary for the national body, Kabiru Yau, was then issued to him (MC Oluomo), to prevent any breakdown of law and order.
The union headquarters in their defense, affirmed that, it came to its notice that, MC Oluomo was inciting members against the national body, an act the general body considered unconstitutional going by the NURTW laws.
The suspension letter given to Musiliu Akinsanya, (MC Oluomo), reads in part:
“This is to convey to you that in line with Article 42 section 5, subsection I, II, III, IV, V, and VIII of the union’s constitution, you have been placed on indefinite suspension from office as State Chairman of Lagos State Council of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) with effect from March 9th, 2021.
“Your suspension is sequel to sustained acts of insubordination and gross misconduct coupled with your clandestine plans to instigate crisis and unleash mayhem on any branch or branches of the union in Lagos state that refuses to obey your order or instructions not to accept directives from the national headquarters of the Union.
Your orchestrated plan to attack branches that may disobey your orders aforesaid will ultimately endanger public peace and order in Lagos state. It is also very likely to threaten and/or affect the lives and property of the peace-loving people of Lagos state, particularly those doing their legitimate businesses within motor parks, hence the urgent need to take drastic actions against you.
“It is on record that you were earlier issued with queries on 25th of February 2022 and 3rd of March, 2022 respectively, in which you were directed to explain the circumstances surrounding your untoward actions, and to also show cause why disciplinary actions should not be taken against you for such acts of insubordination. You bluntly neglected/refuse to respond to the second query, while your response to the first query was unsatisfactory.
“In view of your suspension, you are hereby directed to hand over the mantle of leadership of the Lagos State Council to the State Deputy Chairman and also surrender all Union properties in your possession to the State Secretary of the Union forthwith.”
