The Lagos State Council Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya aka MC Oluomo has received a query from the national leadership of the union.
Naija News understands MC Oluomo was queried for allegedly refusing to carry out some of the directives from the union’s national leadership.
The query letter was signed by the General Secretary of the union, Alhaji Kabiru Ado Yau.
The query letter reads: “Our attention has been drawn to the fact that despite the National Secretariat’s directives during a meeting with you and other members of the Lagos State Administrative Council (SAC) in Abuja on February 9, pertaining to the appointment of Alhaji Azeez Abiola as chairman, Lagos State NURTW Tricycle Operators, you have refused to comply. Instead, you have resorted to intimidation and assault on the newly appointed tricycle chairman.”
The national NURTW also accused Oluomo of using thugs to intimidate other local branches and persons within the union.
“It is on record that you mobilized thugs to forcefully take over the operations of some local branches headed by perceived opponents. To avoid the wrath of the union, the national headquarters, directed MC Oluomo to within 48 hours hand over the former state council secretariat at Abule Egba to the newly appointed Lagos state Tricycle Committee; withdraw all those men you sent to take over the branches of your perceived opponents and submit a written apology to the national secretariat. Failure to comply with the foregoing directives will leave the National Secretariat with no option other than to take disciplinary action against you in line with the provisions of the union’s constitution,” the letter reads.
However, in his immediate reaction to the letter, Oluomo said he wasn’t in the office when the latter was submitted to him.
He promised a feedback and reaction when get s to the office and has a better look at it.
“I was not around when the letter was delivered. I will be in the office tomorrow (today) to look at the content and respond appropriately. I will also avail you my response,” Akinsanya said as quoted by The Nation.
