NURTW Elders Appeal To Govt Over Sale Of BRT Franchise


Elders of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), have advised the Lagos State government to shelve the plan to sell the Bus Rapid Transportation franchise in the interest of the state.

The deputy chairman of Elders’ Forum of the union, Alhaji Y.A. Otegbeye, who gave the advice, said any anomaly noticed in the union that made government to contemplate selling the franchise should be corrected.

He noted that BRT buses were beneficial to members of NURTW who are mainly Yoruba.

“It will be in the interest of the union and state if there is no plan to sell BRT buses and that is the stand of NURTW elders,” he stated.

Bakare noted that there were anomalies in the NURTW, Lagos chapter and advised that such should be corrected.
