The leadership of a section of Ogun State Transport Union has called on Governor Dapo Abiodun to call to order some of the political appointees in the state, who they alleged are brain behind crisis which recently engulfed the body, and still looming.

‘It is a knowing fact that the transport unions in Ogun State especially the car/bus section has been engulfed in crisis after the last gubernatorial election in the state. It is also an open secret that there has been a serious contention over the three transport unions not until recent that relative and easy calm returned, but it last for a while’, Odunuga noted.

Penpushing further reports that the leadership pointed out that the union contributed immensely to the success of the Governor for a second term in office, but expressed dismay that Yaro was hell bent in causing another round of confusion

‘The issues initial involved stakeholders who put in their best to ensure peace and tranquility, and a measurable result was achieved, but one of the union leaders in the person of Alh. Ismailia Mustapha Adewale Yaro seems hell belt in causing confusion in the State as regards the Transport Unions matters’.

Penpushing also reports that the statement alleged that it was recently noticed that Yaro went ahead to bring in non-state actors who were suspected to be members of radical groups, in his bid and efforts to cause mayhem in the state.

‘Though, it remains to be seen if Yaro on his own could weather the storm alone without the help of an insider in the government circle as there are unconfirmed speculation in some quarters that Yaro might have the backing of the SSG, Mr. Tokunbo Talabi, and if such information is anything go bye, it a dangerous trend that must be stopped’, the statement stated.

‘There are also complains in some certain quarters that Yaro have removed some prominent union leaders who worked assiduously and contributed in no small measure for victory of His Excellency Prince Dapo Abiodun in the last guber election and replaced them with his hoodlums’

Penpushing reports that Odunuga said the said prominent leaders of the union are suspected to be members of proscribed radical groups, stressing that he is doing so in exchange for the havoc he uses them to cause in the state and intimate other stakeholders.

‘Some sources claim that Yaro is only trying to destabilize Ogun State because he is not an indigene of the state and might relocate with the speed of light if eventually, he succeeds in causing trouble in the State’, he alleged.

‘So, it is imperative at this junction, we appeal to our peace-loving governor, His Excellency, Prince Dapo Abiodun CON, MFR, to intervene in this matter and caution some of his political appointees who might be involved and indirectly destabilizing the same government they are part of’.

‘And Yaro and his cohorts should be put where they rightfully belong. As they say, no price is too much for peace, and everyone involved should shield their sword and give peace a chance and avoid any act capable of causing unrest in our dear State’, Odunuga emphasised.
