The leadership of the National Association of Road Transport Owners, NARTO, has threatened to confront the leaderships of the both the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, and the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria, RTEAN, if the Lagos State Government do not protect NARTO members from harassment and extortions alleged against NURTW and RTEAN.

NARTO has already petitioned the Lagos State Government; Department of State Security, DSS, Commission of Police in Lagos State, Commission of Police Western Port, Nigeria Shippers Council, NSC, Media Houses; among others on this matter.

The association made the petition available to Vanguard Maritime Report in a letter titled: “Extortion, Harassment and Attack on our Members”, addressed to the Special Adviser on Transportation to the Governor of Lagos State and signed by Chairman, NARTO Lagos, Alhaji Kayode Odunowo, and Chairman, Task Force, NARTO, Prince Hassan Adekoya. They said that their members are extorted of various sums of money in and around the port corridor in the state ranging between N2,000 and N10,000 in each bus stop daily at over 172 bus stops, stretching from Oshodi to Apapa and their members are being extorted in every of these Bus-Stops.

The association said it would be forced to confront the offending bodies if the unhealthy practices are not looked into and resolved, even as urge all the concerned agencies of government to act before it degenerate to breakdown of law and order.
The letter states in part: “We wish to bring to your attention, the unwholesome attitude of some National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW members and Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria, RTEAN agents in Lagos State.
"It is a notorious fact that members of the NURTW extort our members of various sums of money in and around the port corridor in Lagos State ranging between N2,000 to N10,000 in each bus stops daily (over 172 bus stops).

"Our endurance is stretched and we would be forced to react sharply if these unhealthy practices is not looked into and resolved. Consequently, we write to complain about this unwholesome attitude to your office emphasizing enough of the extortion and brutality of our members, we believe you are capable of Putting a stop to this unruly behavior of members of the NURTW and RTEAN in Lagos State before it generate to breakdown of law and order.”

Honestly, I wonder how commercial vehicle owners make money in Lagos state. It doesn't make sense at all the way these guys are charged at every bus stop...

Courier Bike operators aren't left out, they are charged almost like common okada men, these are factors frustrating businesses in Lagos. What makes courier operators subject to ticketing when they pay taxes? I just don't understand.

Sadly enough, nobody is doing anything about these anomalies. Alausa has used politics to destroy a lot of lives in Lagos.

I doubt this is true.

Most Danfo drivers are comfortable with the extortion by NURTW, thats why they do not complain

When they get tired, they will come out and protest seriously.

Invictuse:


Is that because it was your father that gave him the job he is doing ?

Nothing wey lunatics no go write for NL.
You are very stupid and senseless

No wander Nigeria is this backward.

So a public office holder can't be ask a question again?

I will say it again, you're very stupid and senseless.

I'm sure a pig like you would have ask the people protesting (cause there properties were about to be demolished) and asking Sanwo Olu to interfere in the Magodo issue back then if their father gave Sanwo olu the job he was doing?

Jobless and senseless pig.

You have a right to doubt. But do your research anyways. I know what I wrote about courier bikes, it's out there to see.

Hehehe.

The rate of these extortions is too much,not only in Lagos but all over the country.

The funny thing is that most of the money don't go to government accounts.

Is this happening in our almighty mega city?
I don't know why West Coast like thugs are 5 and 6. West Coast can't do without agboro, we hv agboro in other parts of d country but west own too much. Imagine every corner and junction they would all littered around waiting for free money.
One legacy Makinde will leave behind is eradication of all these nuisances but our almighty mega city will always enrich few from the money.

If he wins

We will have to bring our CV to become agbero also, bcoz it will be legalized as an institution.

Jokes apart, that's pee-poo dr*g s*lfish man must not get to the sit.

He wants to use the nurtw to win the election either by hook or by crook.

Nigeria is finished if e does.

A cripple that's cant walk or exercise em self.

He is not mentally stable to become an adviser talkless of a president.

Na ear problem we still dey treat.

Very soon, Nigeria capital will be moved to London.

No Thanks to Jagaban - Criminal Overlord.

Who remembers when touts and NURTW were a thing of the past under Buba Marwa.

Tinubu came in, re-installed these criminals to act as his foot soldiers, the rest is history.
