The President of National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, Tajudeen Ibikunle Baruwa, has dissolved the NURTW Lagos State Council on Tuesday, September 3, at the National Secretariat, Abuja, following the reported clashes and rifts among the leaders and members over leadership control in Lagos State.
The President had expressed that he is not happy with the crises and killings in Lagos State and warned the leaders to stop the rifts, go back, reconcile all their members across the State and pocket their guns and cutlasses while any complain should be put into writing.
The President said that the dissolution of the Lagos State Council is to bring sanity to the members of the union in the state. He appealed to them to go back to the state and resolve issues and differences they have with the association and maintain peace among themselves.
“I am not going to condone any indiscipline among our members in Lagos State. You have established the cause of the problem at the Naval Centre, zoning or no zoning, which is not important, what is paramount is to maintain peace and order in Lagos State”. He said.
He then advised them to accept whoever is going to be the Lagos State Chairman, saying God will give him the wisdom to lead aright and the Chairman to be should go and sit with the elders for advice, as leaders come from God, therefore, no one should waste anybody’s life because he wants to lead.
Baruwa in a press release dated September 3, appealed to whoever has taken his case to Court to go back home and withdraw the case in order for it to be settled in-house. He said the issue of the union should not have been taken to Court because it is an internal problem, which has to be solved with internal mechanism. He advised members with grievances to write petitions about any grievance and if not addressed at the state, they should be forwarded to the headquarters, where they will be looked into and decisive steps taken on them.
