The National Union of Road Transport Workers has commended what it called the “progressive policy directions” of the President Bola Tinubu led presidency.
The group stated this in a press statement signed by the National President, NURTW, Alhaji Tajudeen Baruwa, and the union’s Secretary General, Asogwa Chukwudi.
“We, the members of the NURTW, are solidly behind this administration and will always give our contributions and suggestions to ensure the building of a strong and prosperous nation.
“We also encourage all well-meaning Nigerians to join hands with this government to support the progressive policy direction of this administration as our country is definitely on the path of recovery and prosperity,” the statement said
The union further stated that they were aware of the numerous challenges currently confronting the nation.
They added that they were persuaded President Tinubu had the capacity and ability to reverse the nation’s fortunes and fulfil his campaign pledges.
“We are not unaware of the hardships some of these initiatives are bringing, but we are persuaded that the pains will be short-lived and the decisions are for the corporate existence of our nation,” the statement added.
“In light of this, we call on all transport union members to show more compassion in our transportation pricing so as not to over-burden our people.
“This is a time where we all must make sacrifices for a better tomorrow and join hands with President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to achieve his renewed hope agenda for the nation,” Baruwa was quoted as saying.
