Lagos state government has appointed the chairman of the state branch of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya, alias MC Oluomo, as the chairman of the state parks and garages.
The state information commissioner, Gbenga Omotosho in a statement said a retired assistant inspector general of police, Hakeem Odumosu is to serve as liaison officer to control affairs in motor parks.
The appointments were announced hours after NURTW national administrative council sacked MC Oluomo and appointed the Lagos state NURTW secretary, Seyi Bankole to run the union until a caretaker committee is set up.
NURTW national council had directed all members of the dissolved Lagos council to hand over property and cash of the union in their possession to the state secretary.
Earlier, Lagos state government had suspended the activities of NURTW in the state, following bloody clashes among its factions.
