LAGOS STATE chapter of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), has debunked claims of a planned protest by its members of the transport union in various areas in the state.
There were social media posts about a protest by members of the union in the state in response to a dispute between the MC Oluomo, the embattled chairman of the state chapter and the national body.
Reacting to the development, the NURTW Secretary in the state, Oluwaseyi Bankole, dispelled the claim of a protest, adding that members of the union would abide by the directives of the governor.
“Our attention has been drawn to a protest rumored to be from the members of the NURTW of the Lagos State Chapter,” he said.
- “We want to categorically tell the general public that this is not true and that the people that are supposedly protesting are not recognized nor legal members of our union because we are abiding by the order given by the Governor of Lagos State.
“The general public is therefore advised to go about their daily activities without fear and whosoever that is found disturbing the peace and order in the state should be dealt with accordingly.”
