Chairman of Delta State Council of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Chief Ifeanyi Obi, has advised members of the union to desist from actions capable of causing breach of the peace.

Chief Obi who was reacting to recent crisis involving some members of the union at Uvwie Local Government Area of the state said it was sad that some security operatives got involved in internal activities of the union which led to the crisis.

He said "we were surprised when we heard that some people tried to cause trouble in Uvwie using some security men, the situation is now normal and our members are working peacefully, we know the essence of having a peaceful state and we cannot be involved in any action which can lead to a breach of peace.

"Every member of NURTW understands our constitution and we want to use this medium to thank Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, our Governor for his maturity in handling the affairs of Delta State, we support him and we cannot be involved in anything that is against the law."

Chief Obi stated that NURTW will continue to support Governor Okowa and commended the Governor for appointing Hon. Vincent Uduaghan as the Commissioner in charge of the Ministry of Transport.

According to him, "we are a peaceful people, anybody who does not obey our constitution will be disciplined in line with constitutional provisions, we are happy with our Governor, Dr. Okowa because he understands the way we work and he will work for Deltans, we are happy that he has also appointed a trusted person as the Commissioner for Transport.

"In less than a month of his becoming the Governor, Dr Okowa tackled the erosion menace that almost cut the Ughelli/Asaba road near Ogwashi-Uku, our members and passengers would have suffered if he did not only check the erosion but, reconstructed the road to make it better."
