S/West NURTW ready to return to union — Elders’ forum

Leaders of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in the South West have endorsed a former Chairman of the union in Lagos State, Alhaji Tajudeen Agbede, to be the next president of the union.

They also assured that all the states in the South West which left NURTW were ready to return to the fold on the condition that there was a change of leadership.

Chairman of the South West NURTW Elders Forum, Pa Samuel Jonah, disclosed this in Lagos against the backdrop of a reported solidarity visit by some retirees of the union from the North West, North East and North Central to the incumbent President, Alhaji Tajudeen Baruwa.

It was gathered that Baruwa was represented at the meeting by his Special Assistant on Labour and Industrial Relations, Comrade Abuul Boga, boasting that the five zonal councils would go ahead and install him for a second term despite the South West’s position.

Recall that all the states in the South West left NURTW fold following an intractable crisis which triggered the constitution of park management committees or park management systems in Lagos, Osun, Ogun, Oyo, Ondo and Ekiti.

Pa Jonah said, “We, members of the union in the South West, reject this position. South West is part of Nigeria and no one can write the history of NURTW without making strong reference to South West.
