Following the violent clash between the factions of the Ondo State chapter of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) on Tuesday morning, the state government has announced the indefinite suspension of all activities of the union across the state.
Governor Rotimi Akeredolu speaking through his Senior Special Assistant on Special Duties and strategy, Dr Doyin Odebowale also ordered the NURTW members to immediately vacate all motor parks across the state
Odebowale said the government decision was a sequel to the “unruly and uncultured behaviour of the union leaders which resulted in violent attacks on members and the innocent citizens.
He however said the indefinite suspension did not affect the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN) who comported themselves in a peaceful manner.
Recall that the government had last week ordered the suspension of the activities of NURTW and RTEAN for two weeks over imminent power tussles among the union leaders.
