While condemning the proscription by the Seyi Makinde led government, Oyo NURTW further described the action as “Illegal and recipe for crisis.”
According to The Guardian report today, the Union said it expected government to have ordered arrest of the union’s “expelled member,” who was allegedly stirring up trouble.
It also expressed surprise that government wielded the big stick and proscribed the union that had maintained peace in all parks and garages in the last eight years.
The Union, however, called on all its members to remain calm and peaceful because its National Secretariat and Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) had taken over the matter and would give directions on the next line of action.
Reacting to the order, the state Union’s Chairman, Mr. Abideen Olajide, popularly addressed as ‘Ejiogbe’, accused Alhaji Mukaila Lamidi Auxiliary of fomenting the crisis because he wanted a change of executives by force.
Also, the Union’s Secretary General, Comrade Sunday Yeye, informed that the National President, who is also the Deputy President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Alhaji Najeem Usman Yassin, had been informed of the development and had instructed all members to remain calm
