Yoruba Group Cautions FOSSU President Against Taking Sides In Oyo NURTW Crisis


The Central Council of Yoruba Youths (CCYY) has cautioned the
Federation of Oyo State Students Union, FOSSU against taking sides in
the crisis rocking the Oyo state Chapter of National Union of Road
Transport Workers, NURTW.
The Group in a press release signed by its Chairman, Oyinlola Adekanbi
and Secretary, Adesoji Ifajobi condemned a statement credited to the
out-going FOSSU National President, Comrade Oke Wasiu a.k.a ‘Pattern’,
in which he urged the Governor of Oyo state, Engineer Seyi Makinde to
retain Alhaji Abideen Ejiogbe as the State Chairman of NURTW.
CCYY stated that it was highly disappointed with the statement of the
outgoing FOSSU president, saying that FOSSU should play neutral and
not taking sides in the controversial issue of NURTW in the State.
“Ordinarily, we would not have reacted to such statement if it was
issued on the name of the outgoing FOSSU President but for the fact
FOSSU was involved; we have to urgently react to save FOSSU. We are
not against anybody speaking his or her opinion but what we are not in
support is anybody trying to drag FOSSU into the issue of NURTW
It added: “The Governor of Oyo state, Engineer Seyi Makinde has taken
a decision on the issue and now that the issue is in the process of
being settled amicably; it is an insult on the collective intelligence
of the entire youths in Oyo state for anybody to take sides in the
issue of NURTW in State.”
The Group however warned the outgoing FOSSU President not to drag the
good name of FOSSU into NURTW crisis.
“For the outgoing FOSSU President to have issued such reckless
statement we know that he must have been induced but dragging the name
of FOSSU into it is not what we are in support”
