NURTW Warns Members Against Violence


The National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, at the weekend, warned state chapters of the union against bickering that may disrupt peace in the states.

The General Secretary of the Union, Mr. Clement Wetkur told newsmen in Akure that the present national executive of the union would not tolerate violence associated with change of leadership of the union at state level.

Wetkur said this while reacting to a threat by a faction in the Ondo State chapter of the union called Peace Movement, that if the national executive of the union fails to dissolve the state chapter there would be blood letting and violence in the state.

The national officer who disowned the faction said the union took exception to such “irresponsible statement” from the faction and would take appropriate disciplinary action.
