Unhappy over the decision of the Oyo state government to appoint Park managers to oversee motor parks in the state, the state chapter of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) has given the state’s governor, Seyi Makinde 7 days ultimatum to reverse the decision.
The caretaker chairman of the union in Oyo state, Kayode Agbeyangi who gave the ultimatum in Osogbo on Tuesday at the Zonal council secretariat of NURTW in Osogbo when he addressed newsmen said Makinde’s administration is executing the agenda of former members of the union in the state.
, “The alleged plan to appoint park managers is the height of the onslaught against members of the NURTW that are operating across motor parks in the state.
“Our union has consistently maintained and encouraged industrial harmony in every states of the federation and at no time has our union declare any industrial strike against any government, whether federal or state, and effort must be geared towards averting this.
“The union wishes to once again appeal to Governor Seyi Makinde to allow the activities of the union in the state and rescind the introduction of the park management scheme within one week (seven working days) so as to save thousands of our members and their families from hardship and starvation. This appeal serves as an ultimatum” he said.
