A statement jointly signed by some NURTW leaders including Alhaji Abideen Olajide (a.k.a. Ejiogbe); Otunba Lekan Aleshinloye; Alhaji Lateef Opeyemi; Alhaji Kasali Lawal; Alhaji Isiaq Ajetunmobi; Comrade Taiwo Adesanya; and host of others, said the members had been mobilised to resist “a new twist in illegality” in Oyo State.
“Constitutionally, the responsibility of the administration of our vehicles is saddled with the our union, NURTW which Governor Seyi Makinde had illegally proscribed and which is outrightly above his constitutional powers, as a labour union operates under the Labour Act.
“A Federal High Court judgment had ruled against the illegal proscription of our union and same had been duly served on the Governor through the State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice.
They said they were miffed that “the Governor who swore to uphold the constitution could prod up an illegal committee under the name of “Parks Managers” to run the administration of vehicles in the motor parks and same to be headed by a convicted and rejected Mukaila Lamidi (a.k.a. Auxiliary). ”
