The Chairman, Caretaker Committee for the Road Transport Union in Ogun State, Barrister Sunday Olufemi Adeniyi has disclosed that the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in the state has not gotten either an Acting or a substantive Chairman.
Barrister Adeniyi in a phone conversation with our reporter on Thursday cleared the air, contrary to a report making a section of the social media that the Union now has an acting Chairman.
The Caretaker Committee Chairman appointed by the state Governor, Prince (Dr) Dapo Abiodun said “nobody had been appointed, we did not appoint anyone as Chairman”, assuring that the caretaker committee is fully in charge of the union’s activities until they have their elections.
According to him, “the National President came to Ogun State, met with us and preached peace, which we wanted anyway. He met his people and addressed them to speak with one voice and restore peace in the union”.
Barr. Adeniyi revealed that the union is not dissolved but their activities have been suspended disclosing that as a committee, we would ensure that the Unions are well organized and all their activities are in tandem with the law.
“We can say you and you should come together to work as Agent for a week while another set will work for the following week. That doesn’t mean the person has been appointed as Chairman”, Barr. Adeniyi revealed.
