The National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) has called for immediate disbursement of the federal government’s ‘N10 billion’ COVID-19 palliative for transport operators.

NURTW National President, Prof. Tajudeen Baruwa, made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Abuja.

He commended the federal government for making such provision for transport operators in the country, saying that its essence would be defeated if not timely disbursed.

“During the lock-down occasioned by the outbreak of Coronavirus, workers in both federal and state services received their salaries, our members were subjected to extreme hardship.

“It is of utmost importance that palliatives be extended to our members, this will help to ameliorate the hardship and resultant effects of the disease on them,” he said. NAN)
