MC Oluomo Announces Return to NURTW Following Suspension Lift

Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo and Chairman of Lagos State Parks and Garages (LASPG), has declared his return to the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW). This decision comes after the suspension imposed on him and other South-West members was lifted by the factional President of the union, Alhaji Tajudeen Agbede.

At an event held on Thursday, Akinsanya expressed his gratitude to Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for his support during challenging times. He referred to this transition as a new era for the organization, signifying its return to its “original home.”

In April 2022, MC Oluomo was suspended by the NURTW amid a crisis with the then-President, Alhaji Tajudeen Baruwa. Shortly after, the state governor appointed him as the Chairman of the Parks Management Committee.

After a year and four months, MC Oluomo officially returned to the NURTW, acknowledging Governor Sanwo-Olu’s support.

He reiterated the union’s commitment to supporting the THEMES agenda of the Lagos State governor and emphasized the goal of uniting all members regardless of their affiliations.

“As we transition from Lagos State Parks and Garages to NURTW, the revamped NURTW, both at the national level and the state level in Lagos State, will continue to support the THEMES agenda of His Excellency in Lagos State, which includes Transportation. We are committed to maintaining the necessary support, cooperation, and the strong relationship that existed between LASPG and the Lagos State Governor through the Ministry of Transportation,” MC Oluomo stated.

He also extended an invitation to union members who had previously distanced themselves from the NURTW, encouraging them to return.

Omowunmi Aliu, the Confidential Secretary of Lagos State NURTW, assured the public that the union’s operations would remain unchanged after transitioning from LASPG to NURTW. She emphasized that the LASPG’s goals and expectations of contributing to the development of Lagos State would continue to be upheld.

“We are not changing the way we work; our operations will continue as usual. The mega city that people expect from the Lagos State union will still be here. We are simply returning to our great union, the NURTW. Our mission and what the public expects from us remain unchanged. We have nothing biased about that,” said Omowunmi Aliu.
