A FORMER LAGOS STATE CHAIRMAN OF THE NATIONAL UNION OF ROAD TRANSPORT WORKERS

Written by on April 5, 2022

A former Lagos State Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, Rafiu Olohunwa, has called on aggrieved members of the state chapter who had pulled out of the national body to take a volte-face and seek honest dialogue in resolving the lingering conflict.

In an interview with the Newsmen in Lagos on Monday, Olohunwa urged the suspended chairman, Musiliu Akinsanya, and his followers to retrace their steps into the main body of the NURTW.

Olohunwa, who was Lagos State NURTW chairman between 2008 and 2011, said that the advice became necessary in the interest of peace and progress of the union.

“Whatever every one of us may have become today as a unionist is by virtue of our membership and service to the NURTW. Therefore, we should not be seen to be taking any action that will jeopardize the unity and integrity of the union,” Olohunwa said.

The erstwhile union boss equally urged the national body of the union to be magnanimous enough to accept its estranged Lagos State Chairman back into the fold, stressing the supreme importance of dialogue as the best option for dispute resolution.
