Gbajabiamila said: “We must not play down the road transport union.
“The government will continue to do what it can to help your industry prosper. We will also continue to invest significantly in road transport, which will expand its routes.”
He urged the union not to give in and to be ready to adapt to the new reality of social and economic changes, to prosper in any circumstance.
Minister of State for Women’s Affairs Pauline Tallen praised the transport union for establishing a women’s wing to ensure gender balance, saying it was in line with President Muhammadu Buhari‘s agenda.
Also speaking, the Minister for Labor and Productivity, Dr. Chris Ngige, the Represented Union (RTU), Mr. Amos Falonipe, said that the RTEAN House would help the union to fulfill its functions and objectives for the nation.
According to him, the RTEAN House showed the unity, understanding and forward-thinking mindset of the people who now run the union’s affairs.
Ogunwusi praised the union for changing people’s perception of transport operators.
“I am very happy that the road administration of this country can be so organized. We want to thank the leadership of RTEAN. With what they are doing, there is great hope for our beloved country.
“A lot of people look down on transport unions, but now they’re redefining it. Keep up the good work,” said Ogunwusi.
Maitakobi said the trial was the foundation of the union’s reform and achievements, saying the trial showed that the judiciary was the hope of ordinary citizens.
“Our goal is to reposition the road transport sector to support our commitment to reform public transport management to support government policies and the daily needs of Nigerians with their connectivity and mobility,” he said.
He called on relevant government agencies to deal with the establishment of the Transport Development Bank in the country.
Maitakobi said that transportation connects all sectors of the economy.
