The Anambra government has announced the suspension of tricycle and shuttle bus unions in the state.

The suspension is said to be part of the measures to curb the rising security breaches.

Paul Nwosu, the commissioner for information, said the government’s action followed security reports that indicted most operators of the affected unions for being behind the breakdown of law and order in the state.

He said leadership tussles within the unions were also causing conflicts and disrupting the peaceful movement of residents of the state.


Nwosu said there were conflicts arising from different persons and entities claiming to be the appropriate authority to unionise tricycle and shuttle bus operators or their owners.

“In the light of the above, and in order to forestall a total breakdown of law and order, the state government hereby suspends all tricycle and shuttle bus unions with immediate effect for six months,” he said.

Nwosu said the suspension would remain until further investigations and harmonisation of the unions were completed.


He added that at the end of the exercise, the leaderships of the unions “must be known and recognised by the state government”.
