The National Union Of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), State of Osun Council, has commended the state governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, over the distribution of buses to members of the union and rehabilitation and construction of good quality roads in both rural and urban areas of the state.
The union, in a congratulatory message to the governor, jointly signed by its Chairman, Alhaji Isiaka Olayiwola Afolabi and Secretary Comrade Adeyemi Raymond, described the intervention of Aregbesola’s administration in the state as a round peg in a round hole.
The NURTW, while assessing the three-year administration of governor Aregbesola, which it said cuts across board said, “the love shown by the governor to our union is unique as he has graciously distributed some buses to be used for commercial purposes by our members throughout the state.”
The union also lauded mr Aregbesola for the rehabilitation and construction of good roads in both rural and urban areas of the state, as well as creating enabling environment to better the life of the people.
The NURTW, while commending the governor on his decision to make Osun to compete with old states like, Lagos, Oyo, Rivers and Ogun, declared support for the second term ambition of the governor in the state.
While calling on its members to support Aregbesola, the union said, “what Governor Aregbesola has done since he assumed office has qualified him for a second term in office.”
The union also warned its members to always exhibit carefulness on the roads while returning passengers to their places of work after the yuletide.
“Our members should avoid over-speeding and obey all road signs and above all, present themselves as good ambassadors of our union,” the NURTW counseled.
