NURTW Crisis: Apatira Suspends Activities of NURTW in Itire-Ikata LCDA, See Official Letter


The Executive Chairman of Itire-Ikate LCDA, Hon. (Dr.) Ahmed Olarenwaju Apatira has put a halt to the activities of National Union Of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in the council area, on Friday, 6th September, 2019, blog learnt.

According to the copy of letter made available to blog, the Council Helmsman hinted that the decision was taken after numerous complaints of threats of looming anarchy amongst the NURTW members were brought to the fore by residents of Itire-Ikate LCDA.

Apatira said the decision became inevitable due to intelligence report gathered in the last few days of an impending factional overthrow and counter overthrow of leadership of the Union within the local government area.

"It is worrisome that residents of Itire-Ikate LCDA cannot sleep with their eyes close due to the lingering crisis that has emanated from the union members few days ago."

"All measures taken over time by security personnel in the local government area to bring lasting and peaceful resolution to the  breakdown of peace, law and order by the members and agents of the Union proved abortive as lives and properties in the local government have come under severe threat.

The Chairman said that the Council is invoking her constitutional right to own and manage Motor parks as stated in “Schedule 4 made pursuant to Section 7 of the 1999 Constitution, paragraph 1e thereof, which provides for Establishment, Maintenance and Regulation of Slaughter Houses, Slaughter Slabs, Markets, Motor Parks and Public Convenience”.

"The suspension order would be in place till sanity and peace is guaranteed by members of the Union."
