NURTW crisis: MC Oluomo not served suspension notice, says aide
According to PUNCH, the Lagos State Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, Musiliu Akinsanya, aka MC Oluomo, has not received any letter suspending him.
His spokesman, Jimoh Buhari, who spoke to the news website said “As far as we are concerned, we are not aware of the suspension because we have not received any letter from the national leadership.
“A leader of an organisation cannot be suspended on social media.
“MC Oluomo is going into a meeting at the moment and he is going to chair the meeting. He remains Lagos NURTW chair.”
Earlier in the day, it was widely reported that the national headquarters of the union queried MC Oluomo for allegedly refusing to carry out instructions given to him in recent times by the national leadership.
In the query dated February 14, 2022, Akinsanya was also accused of resorting to intimidation, harassment, and assault on the newly-appointed Chairman, Tricycle Owners and Operators Association of Nigeria, Azeez Abiola, aka Istijabah.
“In his response, Akinsanya, who said he had successfully complied with his oath of office, refuted the claim that he instigated members of the union to assault Abiola.
“He, however, noted that the legality of the TOOAN operations in the state is a subject of a suit pending before the National Industrial Court.
“Akinsanya also refuted claims of engaging in acts of insubordination and anti-union activities in the state” reports PUNCH.
