A passionate appeal has gone to the Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Tunde Ogunsakin to intervene in the crisis rocking the unions of commercial tricycle operators in the state.
Comrade Binoye Sunday who made the appeal at a press briefing in Port Harcourt on Monday, further pleaded with the Police authorities to order one Mr. Julius to release over 48 tricycle (Keke Napep) he has illegally confiscated to the rightful owners.
He said that the Nigeria’s constitution makes provision for freedom of association, adding that the Nigeria Labour Law and that of the Trade Union clearly spelt out that a non-indigene has no legal right to occupy the position of a state chairman of any transport union in a state in which he or she is not an indigene, but only resides to do business.
Comrade Sunday called on the relevant security agencies to come to their aid to find lasting solutions to the problems. ###
