Southwest NURTW Leadership Backs Newly Elected Baruwa-led Exco... urges members to disregard re-election rumor

The leadership of the National Union of Road Transport Workers NURTW , Zone 2, Southwest Nigeria, has called for calm among its teeming members, saying its National President, Alhaji Tajudeen Ibikunle Baruwa, and other executive  members, who were recently sworn- in are the known, authentic, and accepted leaders of the union at all levels.

The Union had on August , 2023 sworn in Alhaji Tajudeen Ibikunle Baruwa as its National President, for a second term in office, alongside other executive members at the 10th Quadrennia National delegate conference, held in Lafia, Nasarawa state, following their election at the Special Zonal delegate conference, held in May, in line with the union's constitution.

A News statement jointly issued by the union's Zonal Chairman Southwest, who was elected as the National Vice President, Chief Folorunsho Olamilekan Salami, and Alhaji Abideen Olajide Ejioogbe, the Oyo State Chairman NURTW,who was elected as the National Trustee, urged members of the Union to disregard a rumour making the round, that a re_election into various national positions of the Union will hold again.

The statement described such insinuation as false, and a figment of imagination  of it's author orchestrated by some disgruntled elements, who have renounced their membership with the NURTW , and flouted Park management system.

"'The disgruntled elements, who have renounced their membership of NURTW are up to mischief ,and have no say whatsoever in the affairs of our union under the law, and the constitution of NURTW, a union which has been in existence since 1978'.

It expresses concern over the rascality, and the level of impunity by the disgruntled elements, who forcefully took over the union's office in Abuja.

The statement urged President Bola Tinubu, to quickly wade into the matter, to forestall  possible breakdown of peace and order in  southwest, saying the brazen manners at which the disgruntled elements are intimidating its members, and interfering in the affairs of the union are capable of creating chaos.

It also appealed to members of NURTW in the southwest, to remain resolute, peaceful, and continue to promote activities of the Union, and support the administration of President Tinubu, in its efforts ,to turn around the fortune of the nation.
