Musiliu Akinsanya, aka MC Oluomo, the Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers' Lagos State Chapter, has been suspended indefinitely.
On Thursday, the union's National Public Relations Officer, Chukwudi Asogwa, confirmed the suspension to newsmen.
"Yes, it is correct. He explained that the letter in circulation came from the national headquarters.
The letter of suspension was signed by Kabiru Yau, NURTW's General Secretary, and dated March 9th, 2022.
The union leader was suspended in the letter for suspected misconduct, insubordination, and inciting state chapter members against the national body.
As a result of the development, the NURTW has ordered Akinsanya to give over to his deputy chairman and release all union property in his hands.
Your suspension is sequel to sustained acts of insubordination and gross misconduct coupled with your clandestine plans to instigate crisis and unleash mayhem on any branch or branches of the union in Lagos state that refuses to obey your order or instructions not to accept directives from the national headquarters of the Union.
“Your orchestrated plan to attack branches that may disobey your orders aforesaid will ultimately endanger public peace and order in Lagos state. It is also very likely to threaten and/or affect the lives and property of the peace-loving people of Lagos state, particularly those doing their legitimate businesses within motor parks, hence the urgent need to take drastic actions against him.
“It is on record that you were earlier issued with queries on 25th of February 2022 and 3rd of March, 2022 respectively in which you were directed to explain the circumstances surrounding your untoward actions and to also show cause why disciplinary actions should not be taken against you for such acts of insubordination. You bluntly neglected/refuse to respond to the second query, while your response to the first query was unsatisfactory.
“In view of your suspension, you are hereby directed to hand over the mantle of leadership of the Lagos State Council to the State Deputy Chairman and also surrender all Union properties in your possession to the State Secretary of the Union forthwith.”©Standard Gazette, 2021.
