Leadership crisis: National NURTW dissolves Lagos council, sacks MC Oluomo

The National Union of Road Transport Workers on Wednesday announced the dissolution of its Lagos State council under Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya better known as MC Oluomo.

The development was contained in statement issued by the  National Administrative Council of the union.

In the statement titled ‘Dissolution of Lagos State Administrative Council’, jointly signed by its national president, Alhaji Tajudeen Baruwa, and general secretary, Alhaji Kabiru Ado Ya’u, the union said the disbandment of Lagos council effectively ended MC Oluomo tenure as its chairman in Lagos.

The union said the resolution was based on the provisions of the union’s constitution.

It added that the union’s secretary in Lagos State, Seyi Bankole, is now the new head of NURTW in Lagos.

“MC Oluomo has been sacked as Lagos chairman. We had a meeting last night. We have replaced him,”  The PUNCH quoted a national officer of the union to have said

The officer averred that Oluomo’s earlier withdrawal from the union was inconsequential, noting that “It holds no ground. That’s unacceptable to us.”

Recall that the leadership crisis rocking the NURTW in Lagos reached its crescendo last month, leading to MC Oluomo and his supporters withdrawing from the union on March 10.

MC Oluomo, who had been in a running battle with the national body of the union in Abuja, was earlier suspended for alleged insubordination.

NAC explained that MC Oluomo was granted a pardon after the mediation of the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress and other leaders but he refused to apologise.

The national council implored members of the public to cease their dealings with Lagos council hitherto led by Oluomo

“The National Administrative Council during its meeting of March 15, 2022, graciously passed a resolution to grant pardon to the suspended state chairman if he shows remorse and tenders unreserved apology to the union.

“However, up until this moment the suspended chairman has bluntly refused to do so; hence, the decision to take action against the Lagos State administrative council by dissolving same,” the statement read in part.

“The National administrative council in the exercise of the powers conferred on it by Article 17, section 2. subsections (i) and (ii) of the constitution of the union, during its meeting of April 5th, 2022, has dissolved the Lagos State administrative council forthwith.

“In view of the fact that nature abhors a vacuum and in line with Article 42 section 4, the State Secretary, Seyi Bankole is hereby directed to take over the running of the affairs of Lagos State council pending the constitution of the caretaker committee after due consultations with appropriate relevant authorities, meanwhile, all members of the dissolved state administrative council are hereby directed to handover all property of the Union, including cash to the State Secretary.

“On the strength of the above development, therefore, all members of the union in Lagos State and beyond, including members of the public are hereby kindly requested to henceforth stop dealing with members of the dissolved Lagos State administrative council on issues concerning the union.”
