I’m NURTW chairman by appointment as park manager


Chief Ifeanyi Okafor of Lasbergas Nig. Limited has revealed that with his recent appointment as the manager of Imo Park, he has automatically become the Chairman of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in Imo State.
Okafor in a press briefing which was held last Monday also disclosed that he was appointed by Governor Hope Uzodimma to raise revenues for the state government which was hitherto diverted into private purses and restore sanity in Imo parks.
According to him “previously NURTW was in charge of Imo parks, but sadly the revenue doesn’t go to the state government .The highest money remitted monthly to the state government was Five Million naira or below.
I have come to raise revenue for Imo State government and our amiable governor. Onwa Oyoko knows my ability in the area of park management and have confidence that I will deliver and will not disappoint him.”
Reacting further, Okafor said it is the prerogative of the state governor to appoint individual or company of his choice to raise revenue for the state through parks. He said in many states, unions are not allowed to raise funds for the government, citing Anambra as an example.
He however, assured that he would accommodate those who are honest to partner with the Shared Prosperity government of Senator Uzodimma.
Okafor also denied sacking 25,000 NURTW workers, describing the report as malicious from selfish individuals who thought the management of parks would remain business as usual.
He stated that he has plans to rebuild Imo parks to international standard. This he said would make Imo public transportation system very enjoyable, just as he assured that parks would be redeveloped and sanity restored. Shopping malls, new public toilet facilities would also be put in place, he added.
Imo Transport Company (ITC) Operation Manager, Uche Onuka, Ideato C. Ideato, Barr. Emeka Ihejirika and Prince Jeff Ukachukwu speaking in the same vein, described Okafor as the right person for the job calling for support among Imo transport stakeholders.
