There have been some crisis in our umbrella body, the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW). All attempt to have an amicable resolution have failed. In fact, we have protested to the Lagos State Government about the situation in our union.
Being law abiding and responsible citizens, we have decided to explore all avenues for peace in the interest of all as we will not support any action that can threaten the peace that we cherish so much in Lagos State.
Therefore, I, Comrade Musiliu Akinsanya Ayinde,, on behalf of the State Administrative Council (SAC), State Executive Council (SEC) members and the entire Union Rank and file members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Lagos State Council with over 200 branches and zones hereby resolve to:
- Immediately withdraw our membership and operation from the national body of NURTW for peace e to reign in Lagos State and to
- Write to Lagos State Governor, Lagos State Ministry of Transportation (MOT) and other relevant agencies about our decision.
