Enough Of Ibadan NURTW Rascality

The supremacy battle by the different factions of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) Ibadan branch must be halted by Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi. For some time now, the Iwo Road axis of Ibadan has become a hotbed of intra-union crisis with many lives lost and properties destroyed. The affected area happens to be the melting pot of people from different parts of the country as it is a major motor park and gateway to many States. Needless to say that many victims of this disturbance were innocent commuters and passers-by who are not in any way involved in the Union’s activities.

It behoves the new governor, the Oyo State Commissioner of Police, the State Director of State Security Services (SSS) as well as the Nigeria Labour Congress (both national and State) to restore peace to the troubled areas. They must promptly arrest and prosecute the arrowheads and foot soldiers of these heinous crime. Oyo is a pace setter state but it must not be in crime and criminality. Enough of this NURTW rascality!
