Members of Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria, RTEAN, a long time of leadership crisis, have come back together under one leadership having.
This followed a court judgment delivered by Justice O.Y. Anuwe of the National Industrial Court which recognized Alh. Musa Muhammed Maitakobi as the national president of the association.
In a press conference jointly addressed in Abuja on Thursday by Alhaji Maitakobi and Yusuf Adeniyi, secretary general, respectively, they appealed to members to embrace total peace and genuine reconciliation in order to move the association forward.
“The present leadership under the current executive national president, Alhaji Musa Muhammed, is calling on all disenchanted, aggrieved, dissatisfied and disconnected members to come together for us to build and reinvigorate RTEAN for progress and development.”
They also called on the press, relevant stakeholders and general public for support since the association cannot do it alone.
“I want to say here that the members of RTEAN cannot do it alone to ensure that peace reigns and progress achieved without the support, co-operations and collaborative partnership with the press and the general public.
“We are therefore calling you all to give support, cooperate with this current leadership in ensuring that there is stability.”
While condoling with families of those that lost their lives in the #EndSars protests across the country, they announced that a committee had been constituted to ascertain the extent of damages and loss that members suffered.
It would be recalled that RTEAN had been engulfed in factional leadership crisis for a long time, and all efforts made to bring the lingering crisis that had caused serious disintegration of the association to an end proved abortive, until the recent judgement.
