The statement seen by New Telegraph partly read:
“In view of the fact that nature abhors vacuum, the state secretary of the union, Comrade Seyi Bankole, is hereby directed to take over the running of the affairs of Lagos State council pending the constitution of a caretaker committee after consultation with relevant authorities.
“The National Administrative Council, during its meeting of March 15, 2022, graciously passed a resolution to grant pardon to the suspended state chairman if he showed remorse and tender unreserved apology to the union. However, up till this moment the suspended chairman has bluntly refused to do so, hence, the decision to take action against the Lagos State Administrative Council by dissolving same."
Tension as NURTW suspends MC Oluomo indefinitely
Recall that the NURTW had suspended MC Oluomo indefinitely. The Lagos NURTW boss was suspended over alleged misconduct, insubordination, and inciting members of the state chapter against the national body.
Legit.ng learnt that MC Oluomo had earlier been queried over alleged meddlesomeness in union matters and a protest staged by his supporters.
They accused the NURTW national leadership of unnecessarily interfering in state affairs.
