Despite suspension of all activities by the national body of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in Lagos state, the suspended organisation is still selling tickets at motor parks and garages.
This is according to DailyPost.
The report revealed that the new instruction to sell tickets was given by suspended NURTW Chairman, Musiliu Akinsanya alias MC Oluomo on Monday.
He ordered union members to continue operations as if nothing happened.
“This is to formally inform all NURTW Chairmen and entire members to operate your day to day union activities at the various motor parks & garages.
“Disregard any patrol policemen parading themselves to disrupt your union operations.”
The notice advised that any disruption of activities by police be reported to the leadership “for rectification”.
Hours after the circular went public, Oluomo issued an update denying that he authorized the sale of NURTW tickets.
The embattled chairman clarified that the ones being sold belong to the Lagos government.
“I am a law-abiding citizen. I have never authorised the sale of union tickets”, he noted.
“Lagos State tickets issued (are) being sold at all the parks and garages. I cannot stop the sales of government tickets. I don’t even have such powers.”
