31 May 2019 Oyo State Govt. takes over all parks in the State from NURTW
While appreciating the good people of Oyo State for Your steadfastness over time and support for our administration, I want to reiterate our stand on the need to maintain peace and tranquility in our state in order to engender commercial and human development.
After today’s deliberation with Security stakeholders meeting, involving security Chiefs and the Government, we have resolved to proscribe the Nigeria Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) until further notice.
All activities of the Union remain illegal henceforth and we urge the people of the State to go about their lawful duties without fear of molestation, as combined security taskforce in every community of the State, have been charged to take control and maintain Peace and Order.
To this end, all parks in the State have been taken over by the State Government with immediate effect.
Engr. Seyi Makinde
Governor of Oyo State
