The activities of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in Oshimili North Local Government Area of Delta State have been suspended till further notice.

This decision was taken on Wednesday during a security meeting attended by the Divisional Police Officers and Directorate of State Security (DSS) personnel in the LGA.

A statement signed by the Executive Chairman of the LGA, Hon. Louis Ndukwe revealed that the decision became inevitable due to intelligence report received on Tuesday night of an impending factional overthrow, counter-overthrow of leadership within the LGA.

According to the statement, all measures taken over time by security personnel in the LGA to bring lasting and peaceful resolution to the impending breakdown of peace, law and order by the members and agents of the union proved abortive to the extent that lives and property in the LGA have come under severe threat.

The Chairman said that the council, in invoking its right to own and manage motor parks, would lean on “Schedule 4 made pursuant to Section 7 of the 1999 Constitution, paragraph 1E thereof, which provides for establishment, maintenance and regulation of slaughter houses/slabs, markets, motor parks and public convenience.”

He said that the suspension order would be in place till sanity and peace is guaranteed by members of the union.

Meanwhile, Ndukwe has notified the general public, residents, property and business owners that all contracts with revenue collectors for 2017 has expired.

He advised them to stop all payments of rates and fees through any agents, staff or proxies till further notice.

The Chairman charged the members of the public to report any activities of anyone claiming to be acting on behalf of the council to any nearby police station or directly to the council authorities at Akwukwu Igbo, its administrative headquarters.
