NURTW suspends

In a letter signed by the NURTW General Secretary, Kabiru Yau, the union disclosed that MC Oluomo is guilty of insubordination and inciting members of Lagos state chapter against the national leadership.

He has been asked to hand over all union properties in his possession to the state secretary and hand over leadership to his deputy.

The letter dated March 9, 2020, reads in part,

“This is to convey to you that in line with Article 42 section 5, subsection I, II, III, IV, V, and VIII of the union’s constitution, you have been placed on indefinite suspension from office as State Chairman of Lagos State Council of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) with effect from March 9, 2022.

Your suspension is sequel to sustained acts of insubordination and gross misconduct coupled with your clandestine plans to instigate cr!sis and unleash mayhem on any branch or branches of the union in Lagos state that refuses to obey your order or instructions not to accept directives from the national headquarters of the Union.

Your orchestrated plan to att#ck branches that may disobey your orders aforesaid will ultimately end#nger public peace and order in Lagos state. It is also very likely to thr#aten and/or affect the lives and property of the peace-loving people of Lagos state, particularly those doing their legitimate businesses within motor parks, hence the urgent need to take drastic actions against him.

It is on record that you were earlier issued with queries on 25th of February 2022 and 3rd of March, 2022 respectively in which you were directed to explain the circumstances surrounding your untoward actions and to also show cause why disciplinary actions should not be taken against you for such acts of insubordination. You bluntly neglected/refuse to respond to the second query, while your response to the first query was unsatisfactory.”
