PUSH NEWS 24 INTERNATIONAL : April 6th, 2022
Lagos State Government has been watching closely events in the National Union of Road Transport Workers Union (NURTW). There have been claims and counter claims over the control of the union.
The Government has a duty to ensure the safety of lives and property of all Lagosians and visitors. Therefore, there is an urgent need to douse the unnecessary tension generated by the leadership tussle in the NURTW and protect the citizenry from the likely fallout of the situation, hence, it took a bold step to setup an independent committee to handle park business in the State of Excellence.
According to a release made available to Push News 24 International, Musiliu Akinsanya popularly called MC OLUOMO has been appointed as the Chairman of the newly established Parks Management Committee.
