NURTW lifts suspension of MC Oluomo


Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo, has returned to the National Union of Road Transport Workers after being suspended for over a year.

The NURTW factional President, Alhaji Tajudeen Agbede, lifted the suspension of MC Oluomo and other members in the South-West on Thursday.

Speaking at an event in Lagos, MC Oluomo thanked Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for his support during the “trying periods” and described the transition as a new dawn for the union.

He reiterated the union’s commitment to supporting the Lagos State government’s THEMES agenda and ensuring the unity of all members.

As we transcend from Lagos State Parks and Garages to NURTW, the revamped NURTW (both at the National Level and State Level in Lagos State) will not rest in our oars to support the Themes agenda of His Excellency in Lagos State,” he said.

“We might be transiting in mere name change, but we will not deviate from the necessary supports, cooperation and the cordial relationship that existed between us LASPG and the Lagos State Governor through the Ministry of Transportation.” he said

MC Oluomo also used the opportunity to embrace all union members who had been outside the fold to come back and be “adequately inculcated back into the mainstream Lagos NURTW.”

The Confidential secretary of Lagos State NURTW, Omowunmi Aliu, said that the operations of LASPG would remain the same even after transitioning to NURTW.

“I want to use this medium to tell the people that we are not going back in the way we work, our operation is still going normally,” she said.

It is still the same union they have always known. The mega city they are always expecting from the Lagos state union will still be here. We are only going back to our great union which is the NURTW, we are still the same and the expectations they are expecting from us is still the same. We have nothing biased about that.”
