The National Administrative Council (NAC) of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) said, based on its constitution, the services of Musiliu Akinsanya aka MC Oluomo, as the Chairman of the Lagos State chapter of the Union is no longer needed.
Although MC Oluomo has earlier been suspended on the grounds of insubordination and incitement of violence, the statement issued on Wednesday, April 6, 2022, titled, “Dissolution of Lagos State Administrative Council” signed by NURTW President, Alhaji Tajudeen Ibikunle Baruwa, affirmed that MC Oluomo has been sacked as the Chairman of the Lagos state chapter of NURTW and that the Union has been dissolved by the National Administrative Council.
The statement also revealed that, despite the fact that MC Oluomo was suspended for alleged misconducts, he has refused to apologize to the Council or be remorseful for this reason.
“The National Administrative Council, during its meeting of March 15, 2022, graciously passed a resolution to grant pardon to the suspended state chairman if he showed remorse and tender unreserved apology to the union.”
“However, up till this moment the suspended chairman has bluntly refused to do so, hence, the decision to take action against the Lagos State Administrative Council by dissolving same.”
NURTW President Baruwa has therefore announced the emergence of Comrade Seyi Bankole, the Lagos state Secretary of the NURTW, as the interim manager of the activities of Lagos state chapter of the NURTW.
“In view of the fact that nature abhors vacuum, the state secretary of the union, Comrade Seyi Bankole, is hereby directed to take over the running of the affairs of Lagos State council pending the constitution of a caretaker committee after consultation with relevant authorities.”
Members of the Union and the general public are herewith, advised in the statement, to desist from dealing with members of the dissolved state council on issues concerning the Union going forward.
