Court Orders MC Oluomo, NURTW, Others To Stop Collecting Levies


A former chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) Lagos branch, Musilu Akinsanya popularly known as MC Oluomo alongside seven others have been ordered by a Federal High Court in Lagos to desist from collecting union dues and levies from commercial drivers that are non-union members in all motor parks in Lagos State.

Justice Peter Lifu gave the order while granting an ex parte application in a suit filed by a lawyer Olukoya Ogungbeje on his own behalf and that of a new transport union, Transport Union Society of Nigeria (TUSON).

The seven others are the registered trustees of the NURTW, registered trustees of Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN), and registered trustees of the Nigerian Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO).
