Nigeria, August 17, 2015, (Blank NEWS Online) –
The Assistant Secretary of the Delta State Council of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) Comrade Tony Igwebuike has called on dismissed members of the union to desist from engaging in actions capable of causing crisis in the state.
In a press release made available to Journalists in Asaba, Comrade Igwebuike said, “it has come to our knowledge plans by some dismissed members of our union to cause trouble in the state.”
“This is Delta, our state, what the state leadership of our union desires is peaceful and progressive union that is supportive of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, there are some people dropping names and casting aspersions on prominent Deltans using the name of our Union, we are against it, we are not politicians, we don’t play politics, our state Chairman, Chief Ifeanyi Obi has made it clear that we must be peaceful and support our Governor,” he said.
He added, “there are some of our members who have been dismissed in their units and branches because of anti-union activities, they should go and reconcile with their units and branches if they are still interested in union activities, they should also know that we believe in dialogues and obedience to our constitution, they should know that insulting leaders, engaging in propaganda claiming backings of people will not help all of us.”
“This is not the time for elections campaign and if they are interested in elections, they should reconcile with their units and branches because, that is what will qualify them to contest for elective positions,” Comrade Igwebuike said, adding, “our Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa is a father to all of us, he understands the roles we are playing, we will continue to support his government, we will continue to live in peace, promote peace in our union and our state because, we will not enjoy the benefit of good governance if we don’t live in peace.”
“We need peace to enjoy state government’s assistance which we know that our Governor, Dr Okowa will give us more vehicles, more buses, so that our members will not only be direct beneficiaries of the prosperity agenda but, will make transportation affordable to all Deltans to the glory of God,” he added, asserting, “those dismissed members should learn to employ dialogue rather than planning to cause crisis.”
