The acting Chairman of the Ogun State chapter of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Alhaji Akeem Bodunrin a.k.a. Iyeru on Tuesday urged Nigerians to use the Independence Day celebration as a time of sober reflection and also to thank God for the strides made so far as a nation.
Bodunrin noted that Nigeria is destined for greatness despite the numerous challenges facing the country.
He said, ”On this October 1st, 2019, I congratulate President Muhammadu Buhari, Governor Dapo Abiodun and all Nigerians on the occasion of Nigeria’s 59th Independence anniversary.
“There are those with the opinion that we have very little to celebrate and I will respectfully disagree with them. In 59 years, our country has faced many challenges, but with the help of Allah, we have overcome many of those challenges and made progress in multiple spheres of human endeavour,” he said.
Speaking further, Bodunrin thanked Governor Abiodun for the tremendous support giving to the union.
“I want to specially thank Gov. Dapo Abiodun for his tremendous support. He is to be commended for the peace we are enjoying in Ogun state chapter of NURTW.
“Ogun NURTW is crisis free, there is no rancour in any of our motor parks,” he declared.
