MC Oluomo

The Lagos State Chairman of the NURTW, Musiliyu Akinsanya, porpularly known as MC Oluomo, has been suspended indefinitely by the National body of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) over alleged misconduct, insubordination, and inciting of members of the state chapter against the apex body.

This was contained in a letter sent to him by the national body citing total disregard for the Constitution of the union as the reason for the suspension.

The decision of the apex body of the NURTW to suspend Oluomo may not be unconnected with the recent protest staged by the Lagos State Chapter of the union in support of the leadership of Oluomo, and of which they accused the Union at the National level of an attempt to unnecessarily interfere with the affairs of the state chapter.

In order to avoid leadership vacuum over the sack, the NURTW national body directed MC Oluomo to immediately hand over the mantle of leadership to his deputy chairman and release all properties belonging to the transport body in his possession to the State Secretary.

Explaining further, the National body said the decision to suspend Musliyu Akinsanya was to prevent the breaking down of orderliness in the state and also to avoid the incitement of the union members against the national body.

In the letter dated March 9th, 2022, the national body noted that the suspension of MC Oluomo became inevitable because he showed no remorse after he was called to explain why he should not be sanctioned for some unconstitutional actions taken by him

The letter, signed by the National General Secretary of the Union, Kabiru Yau, explained that the constitution of the union is sacrosant and should be obeyed by all the members, irrespective of their status

The letter 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, 2021.

“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.”
