Former state chairman Musiliu Akinsanya popularly known as MC Oluomo has been ordered by the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) to vacate the union’s state secretariat in Agege.
Last month, MC Oluomo pulled out of the union after being suspended by the national body over alleged insubordination.
Lagos State Government subsequently appointed him chairman of parks management committee to oversee the affairs of public transportation in the state.
At a press briefing during the weekend, Chairman of the caretaker committee for Lagos state council of the union, Fatai Adesina, who was appointed by the national body, appealed to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to compel MC Oluomo and his colleagues to stop using NURTW secretariat since they are no longer members of the union.
“lt’s very proper and negates common sense. You renounce your membership of the union but you still hold tight to the property of the union,” Adesina said.
“We are appealing to the state government to help talk to the members of the committee to vacate our office.
That complex belongs to the NURTW and since you said you are no longer a member, courtesy demands that you drop all the union’s property in your possession.”
Adesina stressed that one of the terms of reference given to the caretaker committee is to collect all the union’s property, including cash, from MC Oluomo’s administration.
