The Lagos State Secretary of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Comrade Bankole Oluwaseyi (SAGS) disassociates the Union from the purported protest by some unidentified members of the Union.
There were some media reports on Tuesday that some members of the Union had blocked some parts of the state in protest over the ongoing tussle between the national leadership of the NURTW and the suspended state chairman, Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo.
The protest was said to take place in Shomolu, Bariga, Ojota, Alimosho and other parts of the State.
Comrade Bankole while reiterating the willingness of the Union to obey the directives of the Lagos State Government suspending the activities of the Union unequivocally stated that the said protest was not an initiative of registered members of the Union but a brain Child of some elements who are hell-bent in souring the Image of the law-abiding members of the Union.
He re-emphasized that the National Union of Road Transport Workers are law-abiding citizens of the State and are not a party to the purported protest.
