NURTW suspends MC Oluomo till further notice


The National Union of Road Transport Workers slapped its Lagos State chapter’s Chairman, Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as Mc Oluomo, with an indefinite suspension.

According to The Guardian, Oluomo was suspended over alleged misconduct, insubordination, and inciting members of the state chapter against the apex body.

WuzupNigeria on February 28 reported that Olumo was queried over the alleged assault of the newly-appointed chairman of the tricycle operators.

However, Oluomo has been directed to hand over the mantle of leadership to his deputy chairman.

He was also ordered to release all property belonging to the transport body in his possession to the state secretary.

Oluomo’s suspension was contained in the letter dated March 9, 2022, signed by the General Secretary for the national body, Kabiru Yau.

It reads: “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 crisis 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 attack branches that may disobey your orders aforesaid will ultimately endanger public peace and order in Lagos state. It is also very likely to threaten 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.
