Nigerians have hailed new Ogun State Governor, Seyi Makinde following his decision to proscribe National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in the state.
The decision Followed the spate of violence across Ibadan, the Oyo State capital in recent times, according to a statement from the government house.
The government who declared the activities of the Union illegal with immediate effect also announced the taking over of all parks and garages in the state.
A statement signed by the Governor and read by his Chief of Staff, Bisi Ilaka enjoined the people of the state to go about their lawful duties without fear of molestation, adding that combined security task force in every community of the state have been charged to take control and maintain peace and order.
Ilaka who revealed the disclosure at the Executive Chamber of the Governors office said the decision was reached after a meeting with security stakeholders including the security chiefs in the state and government officials.
Reacting, Nigerians have hailed the Governor, who’s has spent barely 48 hours in office, with some calling on other Governors to emulate him, especially the new Lagos state governor, Baba Jide Sanwolu.

What a bold move my OYO state government to have proscribe NURTW in the state

Great move. But until the ban is lifted and we get to know who takes over and who such group owe their allegiance, I will say we applaud with caution. It “MIGHT” be a move for the govt to take charge of NURTW itself for their use. Fingers crossed

Makinde has sense!
This is what Lagos state governor should replicate.

I hear Seyi Makinde @seyiamakinde of Oyo State has proscribed the NURTW.
If only past governors put the safety of lives and properties of the Oyo State people above their own selfish desires,this NURTW # should have been banned or at least restructured since long ago.

If all states ban NURTW (aka Agbero) sanity will gradually return to Nigeria.

-They are touts.
-They smoke weeds.
-Most of them are rapists.
-They terrorize the community.
