MC Oluomo resigns as the Chairman of Lagos NURTW

Musiliu Akinsanya, also known as MC Oluomo, has reportedly stepped down as the chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in Lagos State.

Sources indicate that he intends to vie for the national president position within the NURTW. The decision to resign is said to have emerged after a meeting with Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and other influential figures at Government House, Alausa, Ikeja, on Sunday. Additionally, it is mentioned that President Bola Tinubu played a role in persuading Oluomo to vacate the position.

However, it is reported that MC Oluomo himself is not particularly enthusiastic about assuming the role of the national president of NURTW, as the financial prospects within the Lagos State chapter are deemed more lucrative than the national leadership.

According to a source, “MC Oluomo was compelled to step down. It was revealed that he visited Tinubu privately, away from the media’s attention. My informants shared that Tinubu, considering MC Oluomo’s controversial image, preferred not to appear with him on camera. Tinubu persuaded MC Oluomo to step down, warning that if he doesn’t, he might face public embarrassment through removal.”

Another source added, “They offered him the national president position where the financial gains are not as substantial as in Lagos.”

Meanwhile, the current NURTW treasurer in Lagos State, Mustapha Adekunle (Sego), is poised to assume the leadership of the transport workers’ union in Lagos.
