The Lagos State Government has set up a committee to oversee the affairs of all motor parks and garages in the State via an official statement from the office of Gbenga Omotoso (Lagos state government’s HC, Information & Strategy)
This is in fulfilment of the Government’s promise to ensure that events in the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) are not allowed to threaten law and order.
The Government has, therefore, exercised its constitutional powers to ensure that no vacuum, which can disrupt the peace of our dear State, is allowed to exist in the parks. This is a duty we owe all Lagosians and visitors.
Members of the committee, who have been selected following consultations with stakeholders in the sector, are:
Mr Hakeem Odumosu (AIG Rtd) – Government Liaison Officer, Alh Musiliu Ayinde Akinsanya – Chairman, Alh Sulyman B. Ojora – (Deputy Chairman), Dr Taiwo Olufemi Salaam (Secretary), Comrade Olayiwola Lemboye, Alhaji Mustapha Adekunle, Alhaji Ganiyu Shittu, Alhaji Mukaila Runsewe, Alhaji Sulyman Yusuf, Alhaji Mufutau Mutiu, Alhaji Yinka Hassan, Alhaji Sunday Ogunleye, Alhaji Moshood Omojowa, Alhaji Ismaila Aigoro, Alhaji Ibrahim Yusuf. O, Alhaji Akeem Tijani, Mrs Omolabake Adelakun, Comrade Kazeem Hassan, Alhaji Wasiu Amole, Alhaji Ganiyu Ayinde, Anthony Adeyinka Adeboye, John Victor Owolabi, Saburi Salami, Ibrahim Onitiju and Odusanya Gbenga.
Members of the committee are to report to the Ministry of Transportation, Alausa Secretariat, Ikeja.
The Government on March 10 suspended NURTW operations in all parks and garages, following the tension sparked by some events in the union.
