The Governor of Lagos state; Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has approved the appointment of the sacked chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya aka MC Oluomo, as the Chairman of parks management committee in the state.

Sanwo as he is fondly called by associates and residentsr also approved the appointment of a former Commissioner of Police in the state, AIG Hakeem Odumosu (retd), as the Government Liason Officer.

The duo were part of a 25-man committee set up by the state government to oversee the affairs of all motor parks and garages in the state.

Recall that the NURTW had suspended Oluomo over alleged insubordination and refusal to obey the directive by the National Executive led by Alhaji Tajudeen Baruwa.

Following his suspension, the state government banned the activities of NURTW in all parks and garages in the state and promised to appoint a management committee to coordinate the activities in parks and garages.

However, on Wednesday night, the state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Gbenga Omotosho in a statement said the government set up a committee to oversee the affairs of all motor parks and garages in the state.

He stated that this move was in fulfillment of the Government’s promise to ensure that events in the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) are not allowed to threaten law and order.

The Commissioner said the committee members were selected following consultations with stakeholders in the sector.

The petroleum sector is doing well. The Agric sector is doing well, for those who are planting cassava.

“People buy it there on the farm. I am not saying that things are easy. The government has come with very tough reforms.

The 65th Ordinary Session of the Authority is holding at the Presidential Villa in Abuja where he is expected to pass on the torch to another leader.

The Military leaders of Niger, Mali, and Burkina Faso rule out returning to ECOWAS even as President Bola Tinubu leads Heads of State of the 15-member bloc in a Summit in Abuja to persuade them to return.

“Westerners consider that we belong to them and our wealth also belongs to them. They think that they are the ones who must continue to tell us what is good for our states. This era is gone forever; our resources will remain for us and our populations,”
says Burkina Faso’s leader, Capt. Ibrahim Traoré.

“”Our people have irrevocably turned their back on ECOWAS,” Niger’s General Abdourahamane Tiani says.

“The attack on one of us will be an attack on all the other members,” insists Mali’s leader, Col. Assimi Goïta.
