The Deputy General Secretary of NURTW, Alhaji Suleiman Musa recently revealed this in a statement, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, the union knows nothing about Wednesday’s mayhem in Iwo Road which led to the killing of Rahmon Azeez and massive destruction of properties, so the accusations should stop.
He added that Governor Seyi Makinde should warn Mukaila to restrain from bringing the name of the union into disrepute to avoid any crisis.
His words, “Lamidi Mukaila, aka Auxiliary, appointed as the chairman of the notorious Park Managers created by the Oyo State governor was expelled from the union in 2011 before he was empowered to unleash mayhem on the good people of Oyo State under the guise of running parks for the government.”
“Governor Seyi Makinde had proscribed the National Union of Road Transport Workers in the state since May 31, 2019. Hence, the union views the persistent reports linking it with the nefarious activities of the governor’s appointee as highly unacceptable.”
“The union is urging the Oyo State Government to do the needful and call him to order to prevent avoidable clashes resulting in wanton destruction of properties and loss of lives.”
“The NURTW as a body of law-abiding individuals making a living in the transport sector is averse to all forms of violent activities capable of putting their sources of livelihood in jeopardy.”
“The constitution of the union is very clear in dealing with identified dissidents or bad eggs and that such elements should not be accommodated among peace-loving members.”
“The union appeals to the media and the general public to stop attributing the excesses of the ignoble Park Managers outfit of the Oyo State Government or the nefarious undertaking of its appointed chairman to the NURTW.”
