Delta State Council of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) has called on the state Governor Ifeanyi Okowa to urgently intervene to avert crises that would follow the retrieval of vehicles order given to members of the drivers’ union by the state government.

Chairman of the NURTW in the state, Chief Ifeanyi Obi, who spoke to journalists yesterday, said the move to retrieve the vehicles was in bad faith.

According to him, “We want to let our Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, through you to know that people are out to retrieve buses given to our union members, this action is retrogressive and we are pleading for him to intervene.

“We are aware that the issue of buses have not been discussed anywhere, the buses do not belong to government but our members and the manner with which they are going about collecting our buses is capable of causing crisis because owners of the buses may resist them.”

Chief Obi added: “We are begging for more buses to ease transportation challenges of commuters and the few ones that we have are being retrieved, this will cause hardship for Deltans which I know the Governor will not be happy about.

“Nobody wrote officially to us or came to discuss the issue of vehicles with us and all of a sudden, they want to seize the vehicles, we believe that the governor will call these people to order.”

He lauded Governor Okowa’s administration for the steady efforts to create job opportunities for Deltans and called on all Deltans to support the administration rather than engage in actions that could cause hardship for others.
