BREAKING: Crisis looms in Lagos as NURTW suspends MC Oluomo

Musiliu Akinsanya popularly known as MC Oluomo has been suspended by the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW for insubordination, misconduct and Incitement.

POLITICS NIGERIA learned that Oluomo, who is the Lagos state chapter chairman of the organisation, was suspended shortly after his supporters staged a protest against the national leadership of the union over what they termed ‘Unnecessary Interference’ into the state affairs.

Oluomo was placed on indefinite suspension to prevent chaos as he was already inciting members against the Union, an act that is against the constitution of the organization.

In the letter dated March 9th, 2022, the national body disclosed that the decision to suspend Akinsanya resolved was taken after he expressed no remorse over his actions even after being asked to explain the reasons for his actions.

The letter read in part: “This is to convey to you that in line with Article 42 section 5, subsection I, II, III, IV, V, and VIII of the union’s constitution, you have been placed on indefinite suspension from office as State Chairman of Lagos State Council of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) with effect from March 9th, 2022.”

“Your suspension is sequel to sustained acts of insubordination and gross misconduct coupled with your clandestine plans to instigate crisis and unleash mayhem on any branch or branches of the union in Lagos state that refuses to obey your order or instructions not to accept directives from the national headquarters of the Union.”

“Your orchestrated plan to attack branches that may disobey your orders aforesaid will ultimately endanger public peace and order in Lagos state. It is also very likely to threaten and/or affect the lives and property of the peace-loving people of Lagos state”.

Oluomo was ordered to hand over to his deputy and submit all union materials in his possession.
