Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya popularly known as MC Oluomo has been sacked by the National Union of Road Transport Workers.
The union also dissolved the MC Oluomo-led Lagos State council.
In a statement jointly signed by the union’s national president, Alhaji Tajudeen Baruwa, and general secretary, Alhaji Kabiru Ado Ya’u, the union said the decision was based on their constitution.
The union’s secretary in Lagos State, Seyi Bankole, was subsequently announced as the new head of the state NURTW.
The union argued that MC Oluomo’s earlier withdrawal from the national body is void and unacceptable.
There is leadership crisis in the NURTW, Lagos Chapter that led to the suspension of MC Oluomo after which he later withdrew his chapter from national body on March 10.
“The National Administrative Council during its meeting of March 15, 2022, graciously passed a resolution to grant pardon to the suspended state chairman if he shows remorse and tenders unreserved apology to the union.
“However, up until this moment the suspended chairman has bluntly refused to do so; hence, the decision to take action against the Lagos State administrative council by dissolving same,” the statement read in part.
“The National administrative council in the exercise of the powers conferred on it by Article 17, section 2. subsections (i) and (ii) of the constitution of the union, during its meeting of April 5th, 2022, has dissolved the Lagos State administrative council forthwith.
“In view of the fact that nature abhors a vacuum and in line with Article 42 section 4, the State Secretary, Seyi Bankole is hereby directed to take over the running of the affairs of Lagos State council pending the constitution of the caretaker committee after due consultations with appropriate relevant authorities, meanwhile, all members of the dissolved state administrative council are hereby directed to handover all property of the Union, including cash to the State Secretary.
“On the strength of the above development, therefore, all members of the union in Lagos State and beyond, including members of the public are hereby kindly requested to henceforth stop dealing with members of the dissolved Lagos State administrative council on issues concerning the union.”
