Akinsanya lauded Lagos Governor, Babajide Sanwo-olu for his support towards the union during ‘trying periods’ while describing the transition as a new Dawn in the organisation to its “original home”.

He reiterated the union’s commitment towards supporting the THEMES agenda of the Lagos State governor and also ensuring uniting all members irrespective of affiliations.

According to him: “As we transcend from Lagos State Parks and Garages to NURTW. The revamped NURTW (both at the National Level and State Level in Lagos Sate) will not rest in our oars to support the Themes agenda of His Excellency in Lagos State. As we all aware that in the Themes agenda, T represents Transportation. We are therefore using this medium to reiterate our full corporation to all the giant strides of His Excellency in the Transportation Sector in Lagos State.

“We might be transiting in mere name change but we will not deviate from the necessary supports, cooperation and the cordial relationship that existed between us LASPG and the Lagos State Governor through the Ministry of Transportation.

“As it is being opined that “Unity is “progress” the Alhaji Musiliu Ayinde Akinsanya led Lagos NURTW is geared towards uniting all members irrespective of affiliations.

“While also using this medium to embrace all Union members hitherto outside to come home and by the grace of God, they will be adequately inculcated back into the mainstream Lagos NURTW”, he said.

The Confidential secretary, Lagos State NURTW, Omowunmi Aliu noted that the operations of LASPG remains the same after transitioning to NURTW adding that the insecurities earlier experienced in the LASPG was as a result of people not understanding what LASPG stands for.

She said: ” I want to use this medium to tell the people that we are not going back in the way we do work, our operation is still going normally. It is still the same union they have always known. The mega city they are always expecting from the Lagos state union will still be here.

“We are only going back to our great union which is the NURTW, we are still the same and the expectations they are expecting from us is still the same. We have nothing biased about that.

“When we were in LASPG, things were somehow because people don’t really understand it like the NURTW but now that we are back in our main uniform and our main body, everything will be perfect, when they are mentioning the NURTW, when they are mentioning the union. It is the same national union of road transport workers. We won’t be having two Lagos state park management”.
