The Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN) Lagos State Chapter hat suspended its Vice-Chairman, Oluwaseyi Bamgbose, popularly known as ‘Student,’ for instigating unrest in the association.
Penpushing reports that, National President of the association, Musa Muhammed, made this known in a statement explaining that Bamgbose’s recent moves and actions were capable of instigating violence in the Lagos State Council of the association
The statement issued by the National Publicity Secretary of the union, Abdulrahman Amusan said Bamgbose had on Wednesday organised an illegal protest at the Alausa Secretariat with some disgruntled elements in his efforts to create violence and unrest in the association.
Penpushing further reports that, the statement emphasized that, Bamgbose’s intention was to cause trouble so that the state government would regard the association as uncoordinated and subsequently placed a ban on its activities.
The statement added that, while Bamgbose was organising a protest in Ikeja on Wednesday, another clash instigated by him was going on at Iyana Iba in the Ojo area so that government would have believe that there was fighting within the association for the authorities to take over the operations of the association
“Bamgbose wants to create an impression that all is not well in the association. RTEAN has taken decisive action against him, he has been put on suspension in accordance with the association’s rules and regulations’, he declared.
“The union is a discipline organisation and will never tolerate or condone any act of violence, especially during this campaign period and elections that are coming. The union cannot afford any act of violence’, the statement said.
Penpushing also reports that, the statement on the order of Muhammed who doubles at the Chairman of the chapter said the suspended official was having ambition for higher position, stressing that there is process for this, and should wait rather than resorting to violence.
“If you want to be the president or the chairman or anything in the association, there is a process. If there is any grudge or complaints, there is equally a process where you can report the matter and it will be critically looked into and resolved’.
“Instead of that, Bamgbose decided to invite some hoodlums, cult guys and area boys to destabilise peace. The union is taking appropriate action to discipline him in accordance with the rules and regulations of the association”, he added.
