Eight former students Union leaders of Lagos State University (LASU) have been inducted into the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN).
In a statement by the association’s chairman, Nurudeen Eniafe, and secretary, Olalere Owoseni, in Lagos on Tuesday, the move is part of the rebranding effort to correct the notion that the association consists of uneducated and never-do-well personalities.
The statement lauded the association’s National President, Musa Mohammed, for his efforts in ensuring that the association was sanitised at all times.
“The emergence of Alhaji Musa Mohammed, fondly called Alhaji Mollar, as the National President, represents the turning point of the old public narrative from negative to positive, for arguably the most vibrant trade union in Nigeria.
“We want to commend the national president of the union for cleansing the system and giving student leaders a room to direct the affairs of chapels of the association.
“In the same vein, we want to also appreciate the astute and impeccable role of our father, his royal majesty king Adeshina Raji, the Oniba of Iba Kingdom, who, in his pleasant disposition, gave us his support,” it noted.
The statement quoted a recent report by a media organisation that the Lagos chapter of the National Road Transport Workers Union, generated annual revenues of N123.08bn.
It attributed this to the induction of Nigerian graduates into the association, to offer their expertise.
The induction took place during the inauguration of the LASU chapter of the association.
The inducted students’ union leaders were; Nurudeen Eniafe, Akamo Babatunde, Samuel Olalere, Macarthy Olatunji, Ayomide Bakare, Oladele Omotayo, Isaiah Kuku and Osho Oladele.

IPOB Warns, Senator Orji Uzor kalu, Will Be Held Accountable If Anything Happens To Nnamdi Kanu In DSS Custody
The Indigenous people of Biafra, IPOB, on Saturday vowed to hold Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, Senate Chief Whip accountable if anything happens to its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
IPOB lamented that Kalu’s unsolicited visit to Kanu while in detention was worrisome, adding that the purpose of his visit was suspicious.
Emma Powerful, spokesman of IPOB said the mission of the former governor of Abia State is unknown.
In a statement he issued, Powerful said: “We the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of our great leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU is raising alarm over the unsolicited visit of Orji Uzor Kalu to our leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU whenever our leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU is detained.
“We don’t know the mission of Orji Uzor Kalu over the visits and we are worried.
“We therefore, wish to put the world on notice that Orji Uzor Kalu will be held responsible for whatever happens to our leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU in detention.
“We are not comfortable with Orji Uzor Kalu’s suspicious visits to our leader. We don’t know whose interest he protects. We will also hold responsible, those who permitted him to see our leader in detention.”
The separatist group also vowed to hold the Department of State Services, DSS, responsible for any harm on Kanu.
IPOB wondered why Kalu would be allowed access to its leader despite court ruling.
“The DSS allowed him access against court order which all visitors, including Kanu’s lawyers comply with. We all knew that Orji Uzor Kalu’s name is among those who bankrolled and sponsored the extraordinary rendition of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from Kenya to Nigeria,” he added.
