Breaking: Ogun NURTW Resolves Crisis, Yaro, Iyeru To Co-Exist

The leadership tension in the Ogun state chapter of the National Union of Road Transport Workers has been finally laid to rest.

This follows the intervention of key players at the state level.

With this renewed resolve, Mustapha Ismaila Yaro, and Akeem Bodunrin Iyeru have resolved to work amicably in the overall interest of the state.

The following agreements were made today in the presence of security agencies

The clash erupted in the early hours of the day at various motor parks in Lafenwa, Obantoko, Brewery, Ita-Oshin, Odeda, and Kuto in Abeokuta.

The state government created OGSPAM after NURTW activity was suspended in the state in 2021.

But in October, it lifted the ban on NURTW and asked its leadership to take charge of revenue collection at parks.

Monday’s trouble started when the Ogun State Commissioner for Transportation, Gbenga Dairo, directed the leadership of OGSPAM to stop the sales of revenue tickets while NURTW was ordered to take over.

The new development, however, did not go down well with members of OGSPAM storming the parks on Monday with dangerous weapons and shot sporadically.

As a result of this development, security operatives were deployed to the affected areas and other strategic locations in the state capital to maintain law and order.
