MC Oluomo Suspended Indefinitely As NURTW Lagos Chairman
The Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Musiliu Akinsanya, also known as Mc Oluomo, has been suspended indefinitely by the NURTW’s national leadership.
MC Oluomo is accused of disobedience and instigating union members against the national leadership, according to a letter of suspension signed by NURTW General Secretary Kabiru Yau.
The letter, dated March 9, 2022, instructed MC Oluomo to pass over all union holdings in his custody to the state secretary, as well as the administration of the union to his assistant.
Prior to this recent development, the NURTW had sent MC Oluomo a letter of inquiry, but he responded by denying all of the allegations leveled against him.
He said that all of the accusations leveled against him were unfounded and without merit, and that he is a peacemaker.
In his relations with other member unions, the popular NURTW veteran maintained he has not breached any of the union’s operating regulations, as indicated in the query.
The NURTW, on the other hand, stated in its notification of dismissal that his response was insufficient.
The letter of suspension 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 9th, 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.
“In view of your suspension, you are hereby directed to hand over the mantle of leadership of the Lagos State Council to the State Deputy Chairman and also surrender all Union properties in your possession to the State Secretary of the Union forthwith”.
