The Ondo State Government has suspended the activities of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) citing “protracted crisis.”

A park management committee has consequently been appointed to man all motor parks in the state.

“Consequent upon protracted crisis in the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) operating in the Public Motor Parks in Ondo State, the Government has intervened by setting up MOTOR PARK MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE to manage and administer all the Public Motor Parks in the State.

“The Government noted the unfortunate unending crisis and litigation involving the Union in Court which has adversely affected activities in the Public Motor Parks in the state.

“The Government therefore has decided to take over all the Public Motor Parks in the State and set-up a Committee to administer same”, a statement signed by Kenneth Odusola-Stevenson, a spokesman for the acting governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, said.

The appointment takes effect from April 1, 2022, according to Mr Odusola-Stevenson. He further noted that the Committee shall report to the state governor through the Office of Special Adviser to the Governor on Union Matters and Special Duties.
