The National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) has ordered its former Lagos State chairman, Musiliu Akinsanya popularly called MC Oluomo, to vacate its state secretariat.
Naija News recalls that MC Oluomo publicly renounced his membership of the union, after being suspended by the national body over alleged insubordination, among others.
Following the resignation of MC Oluomo’s membership of the union, the national leadership of the union dissolved its Lagos council previously headed by Akinsanya.
He was subsequently appointed by the state Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, as Chairman of the newly created Lagos State Parks Management Committee, to oversee the affairs of public transportation in the state.
Addressing journalists in Lagos on Saturday, the Caretaker Chairman of the Lagos council of the union, Fatai Adesina, asked MC Oluomo to leave its state office with immediate effect.
Popularly known as Akeweje, Adesina said since MC Oluomo and his colleagues are no longer members of the union, it is right for them to stop using the NURTW secretariat.
He, however, appealed to Governor Sanwo-Olu to compel the former NURTW boss in the state to do the needful in the interest of peace and tranquillity.
He said: “It’s very proper and negates common sense. You renounce your membership in the union but you still hold tight to the property of the union.
“We are appealing to the state government to help talk to the members of the committee to vacate our office. That complex belongs to the NURTW and since you said you are no longer a member, courtesy demands that you drop all the union’s property in your possession.
“We are all card-carrying members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and this is election period; we don’t want anything that will affect the peace in the state, hence, our appeal to Oluomo and his people to leave our property.
“One of the terms of reference given to us is to collect all the union’s property, including cash from executives of former administration.“
