Ekiti Threatens To Ban NURTW, RTEAN Over Violence
Ekiti Threatens To Ban NURTW, RTEAN Over Violence – Ekiti government has threatened to proscribe the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) and the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN) in the state, if they further involve in violence.
The deputy governor, Bisi Egbeyemi, who gave the warning yesterday at the signing of a peace accord by the leadership of the two unions, said nobody would be allowed to disrupt the peace in the state.
Egbeyemi said that the full weight of the law would be visited on anybody who unleashes mayhem in the name of inter-union rivalry, as the peace of the state remains paramount to the Kayode Fayemi administration.
According to a statement signed by the Special Assistant (Media) to the deputy governor, Odunayo Ogunmola, the two unions expressed satisfaction with the terms of the peace deal brokered by the state government.
The NURTW chairman, Mr. Oso Farotimi, and his RTEAN counterpart, Chief Rotimi Olanbiwonnu, led other officials to sign the peace pact.
