The National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) have reportedly dismissed Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya or MC Oluomo as he’s well known as, and dissolved the Lagos State council of the union.
MC Oluomo was the chairman of the Lagos State council of the NURTW and was previously suspended by the body. However, the National Administrative Council of the union have now made their decision.
A decision council which according to them is in line with the provision of its constitution. This was made public in a statement signed by its president, Alhaji Tajudeen Ibikunle Baruwa, and general secretary, Alhaji Kabiru Ado Ya’u.
The statement titled ‘Dissolution of Lagos State Administrative Council’ partly read,
“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.”
“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.”
MC Oluomo has recently been engaged in a running battle with the national body of the union in Abuja. He was suspended for insubordination and in retaliation to his suspension, he had announced his exit from NURTW.
