The National leadership of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) has stated that the appointment of the 14-man management council led by Alhaji Tajudeen Agbede has laid to rest the agitation for election in the Lagos State Council of the union.
The National Headquarters in Abuja in a letter signed by the President of the union, Alhaji Najeem Yasin, explained that the atmosphere in Lagos State Council was not conducive for any elections to hold, hence the decision of the leadership in Abuja to appoint a 14-man management committee.
The position of the NURTW national headquarters has finally laid to rest rumours making the rounds about elections in the state council.
It was gathered that the members of the committee were carefully chosen to represent various interests in the state council of the union to allow for peace and understanding.
It was commendation galore last Thursday when the acting chairman of the Lagos State Council of the union, Alhaji Tajudeen Agbede and members of the committee took turn to address members at the monthly meeting of the state council.
Agbede assured members that he would use the opportunity given to him to improve the welfare of members, stating that he would run an open-door administration.
