CHAIRMAN, Delta State Council of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Chief Ifeanyi Obi has commended security operatives for their prompt response which ensured that the crises that rocked Ika South branches of the Union did not escalate.
Responding to what transpired at the local government last weekend between members of the drivers’ union, Chief Obi disclosed that those who caused the mayhem have been dismissed by the Union because of their violent tendencies in their units and branches.
“We want to thank security men for their actions, those people would have wrecked havoc which could have led to the loss of life,” he said, adding, “we are happy that the situation is normal and our people are working peacefully, Ika South is peaceful.”
He stated, “I have always told them, that we have a new government and that we should work and live in peace, we should allow our Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa to settle down, our members are happy carrying out their functions without problem until that unfortunate incident.”
Chief Obi who said the union was ready to absorb anybody who is a commercial vehicle driver, emphasized, “the era of thuggery, era of violence is over, our actions are guided by the constitution, so, if you were dismissed by your unit and your branch, follow due process to rejoin the union if you are still interested, it cannot be done by force.”
“We are not lawless and we will follow due process in whatever we do,” Chief Obi said, emphasizing, “this is time to support our Governor, it is important that we do that because we are known for working with government in power and the situation cannot be different when we have Senator Okowa as our Governor.”
