BREAKING: Ondo State Governor, Akeredolu Bans NURTW, RTEAN


The Executive Governor of Ondo State, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has proscribed the activities of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) and the Road Transport Employers’ Association of Nigeria (RTEAN) from all motor parks in the state.

NEWSGIST learnt that both unions were warned to stop collecting dues and levies from commercial drivers in the state.

Speaking through Dr Doyin Odebowale, the Senior Special Assistant on Special Duties and Strategy, Akeredolu said the ban of the driver unions’ activities was due to leadership tussles.

He said new tickets would be sold directly by government officials and urged commercial drivers to revert to the old price of N50 per drop.
