The National Industrial Court of Nigeria (NICN) has ordered the reinstatement of the operations of the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN) in Lagos State.
This is as it sacked the Lagos State Parks and Garages Management Committee led by Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo.
Justice Maureen Esowe, on Tuesday, April 16, 2023, ruled that the setting up of a parks and management committee by the Lagos State government was illegal.
The court, in its ruling, also barred the state government from further interfering in the operations of the union’s executive.
Justice Esowe said the state government and the police should have intervened by arresting and prosecuting those behind any fracas purportedly involving union members and not inquiring into the dispute.
