The Lagos State chapter of the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria has pledged its support for the National Executive Council of the association.
The state chairman of RTEAN, Musa Muhammed, also refuted the claims of dissolution of the association at the national and state levels.
The state chairman, who doubles as the National Deputy President (Administration), said the state chapter made the decision after a meeting on Friday.
Muhammed said the attempt to change the leadership of the association through banditry was condemnable, adding that the purported dissolutions were of no effect.
He said, “The former secretary general has no constitutional right to call any meeting without being directed by the president. The president and other national officers were attending an official meeting with the Bank of Industry in Lagos on the day the illegal expulsion took place.
“All actions, decisions and pronouncements made through this illegal act should be disregarded by members of the public and security agents.
“The National Executive Council of RTEAN, under the leadership of the National President Musa Isiwele, is intact, having been duly elected for five years term which commenced on April 25, 2018.
“Also, the Lagos State executive council is intact and remains the valid authorised and duly elected body.”
