NURTW: Ogun Government Directed To Lift BanK
Friday October 6, 2023
The Ogun State Government has been directed to lift the ban earlier imposed on all the union activities of the state chapter of the National Union of Road Transport Workers.
The directive is contained in a resolution passed by the Ogun State House of Assembly to the state governor, Dapo Abiodun.
The passage of the resolution followed a motion moved by the Majority Leader, Yusuf Sheriff, seconded by the Minority Leader, Adeleye Lukman, and supported by the whole House through a unanimous voice vote.
The union had been banned from operating in the state for about four years due to a leadership crisis.
The passage of the motion followed contributions of the Chairman, House Committee on Transportation, Oludaisi Elemide who recounted the crisis that led to the ban of the union by the 9th legislature.
