The Board of Trustees (BoT) of Tricycle Owners and Operators Association of Nigeria (TOOAN) has reaffirmed Mr Azeez Abiola as the its Lagos State chairman, cautioning members to be of good conduct and display professionalism at all time.
This was contained in a statement titled; ‘Keeping The Records Straight And A Word Of Caution To Members Of TOOAN ‘ issued by the BoT on Monday.
The leadership of the association said following the considered choice and ultimate endorsement of Mr. Abiola (Istijabah) as Lagos chairman of TOOAN by the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) national leadership, the stage is set to reorganize the association in Lagos in line with decency, obedience to constituted authority, abiding with the law of the state government and the constitution of Nigeria.
The BoT urged the general public and all TOOAN members in Lagos to cooperate with the Azeez Abiola led Caretaker Committee in order to positively transform the transport sector in the state.
While advising its members not to engage in any violent acts despite any provocation, the BoT said: “TOOAN remains an affiliate of NURTW as this is a decision we have taken long before now without any iota of doubts until those who pride themselves as lords-above-the-law came on stage.
“Nonetheless, NURTW is our sister union and the terms of our relationship as an affiliate shall remain guided by TOOAN.
“It was our choice, without coercion, that we voluntarily name TOOAN as TOOAN OF NURTW.”
