The Lagos chapter of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) has withdrawn its membership of the national union.

TheCable had reported that the NURTW suspended Musiliu Akinsanya, better known as MC Oluomo, chairman of the Lagos chapter of the union, indefinitely over alleged misconduct, insubordination and incitement.

The indefinite suspension of MC Oluomo was contained in a letter signed by Kabiru Yau, general secretary of the NURTW, and dated March 9, 2022.

Speaking on Thursday at a meeting at the state secretariat, the NURTW Lagos leader said for peace to reign, the state chapter has resolved to withdraw from the national body.


“We cherish the peace we have been enjoying in Lagos and we will not allow anyone to truncate the tranquility currently being experienced by Lagos state union members as well as the good people of Lagos state,” MC Oluomo said.

“In order to promote peace, harmony, legality, I, Musiliu Akinsanya, on behalf of all members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Lagos state chapter, with over 200 units, hereby resolved to immediately withdraw our membership (and operations) from the national body of NURTW for peace to reign in the state.

“We shall promptly write to Lagos state governor, Lagos state ministry of transportation and other relevant agencies about our decision.


“We hereby call on Lagos state government to take over the running of the affairs of the union with the constitution of a park management committee for motor garages and parks in the state, thereby ensuring peace and tranquility, pending the determination of the matter in the interest of the good people of Lagos state.”

Meanwhile, following the suspension of MC Oluomo, Abiodun Alabi, Lagos commissioner of police, ordered the deployment of officers to motor parks.

Alabi, in an interview with Channels Television on Thursday, said the move was necessary to prevent any form of violence that may occur owing to the suspension of the Lagos NURTW leader.
