Ondo State Government has suspended both the National Union of Road transport workers, NURTW, and the Road Transport Employers’ Association of Nigeria, RTEAN in the state.

The Senior Special Assistant to the governor on special duties and strategy, Dr Doyin Odebowale said that the suspension was with immediate effect.

Odebowale attributed the suspension to recent leadership crisis within the two unions

He directed the leadership of both unions to vacate motor parks across the eighteen local government areas of the state and to stop collecting dues from taxi drivers and other motorists across the state.

Odebowale also directed taxi drivers to revert to the old price of N50 per drop across the state.

He explained that new tickets would be purchased directly from the state government and no more from the unions.

The Governor’s aide said “every attempt to make life difficult for the masses would be restricted by the state government.
