The Ogun State Government has warned the leadership of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) and their operatives to stay away from all parks and garages in the state to avoid incurring the full wrath of the law.

The warning was made known in a statement issued by the state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Waheed Odusile, on Sunday.

According to Odusile, it became necessary in view of intelligence reports by the security agencies that the union was planning to resume collection of dues and revenues on behalf of the government at the motor parks and garages in the state.

This is, however, against the existing decision of the government that bans the activities of the transport workers in all the motor parks and garages in the state.

It maintained that following crisis in the leadership of the NURTW in the State that threatened the security of lives and properties, particularly public transport in the State, the House of Assembly in June 2020 passed a resolution suspending the activities of the union.
