Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi has cautioned members of Nigerian Union of Road and Transport Workers (NURTW), Tricycle Owners Association of Nigeria (TOAN) and other transport unions to shun violence and desist from any act capable of disrupting peace in the state.
Ajimobi handed out the warning during a peace parley aimed to end the lingering crisis between the two transport unions held at the conference room of the Ministry of Works and Transport in Ibadan.
The governor, who was represented at the parley by Commissioner for Works and Transport, Wasiu Dauda, said that he would not tolerate any breach of peace in the state, stating that his administration is committed to ensuring the security of lives and properties of its citizenry.
He stressed that the prevailing peace in Oyo State which has led to various developmental projects as well as attracting investors to the state should not be truncated.
In the communiqué signed by both parties at the end of the meeting, the Unions agreed to abide by the law, assuring the government that peace would continue to reign among the unions in the State.
The State Chairman of NURTW, Toafeek Oyerinde commended Ajimobi for organizing the peace parley to resolve the crisis between the two Unions.
Oyerinde enjoined NURTW and TOAN members not to allow politicians use them to truncate the peace enjoyed by the citizens of the state.
