The Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Oyo State branch, Alhaji Taofeek Oyerinde, popularly known as Fele, has assured members of the union that the new state office of the union would be ready before the end of the year.
The NURTW boss said this on Wednesday when the exco held their weekly meeting at the site, saying the office would be completed by December.
Oyerinde, who is also the South West Chairman of the union, explained that the union had received some donations from the national body of the union.
“As you can see, we are having our monthly meeting here at our new site, which is under construction, but I can assure you that the work will be completed before the end of this year by God’s grace because we are seriously working on it.
“Right now, our National President, Alhaji Yasin, has contributed to the completion of the building, likewise donors from Osun, Ondo, Lagos and Kwara state chapter of the union.
Meanwhile, the chairman has charged members to always embrace peace at all level, saying the union was now known for peace and not thuggery.
It will be recalled that the union’s state office at Olomi, last weekend, collapsed during a downpour last Saturday.
