Enugu:  Members of Association of Tricycle Riders Transport Union (ATRTU) Enugu State have given a vote-of-confidence on its current Chairman, Mr Sunday Ozeh, for his exemplary and people-focused leadership.

The ATRTU union members also gave a vote-of-confidence on its current Board Chairman, Mr Benjamin Ikah, for his exemplary fatherly guidance and peaceful disposition.

The ATRTU union members made the pronouncement on Wednesday in Enugu at a statewide meeting of the union attended by over 250 unit executive members scattered within various localities of Enugu State.

Speaking, Comrade Emeka Nwakpa, Branch Chairman of ATRTU in Trans-Ekulu, said that the vote-of-confidence had become necessary in order to clear any doubt about the leadership of the union.


Nwakpa noted that the fruitful meeting was to set the record straight and ensure that no rumour or misguided individual dissuading the members of the public on thinking there was a change of leadership in the union.

“The current leadership, which was duly elected some months ago, underwent due and peaceful election supervised by the state Ministry of Transport officials as well as officially inaugurated by same ministry officials.


“So, everyone wishing to work with the union should do that with our duly, freely and democratically elected state executives and nothing more,” he said.

Contributing, Comrade Onyebuchi Ugwu, Branch Chairman of ATRTU in Udenu LGA, said that the union was ready to work with the state government to move the state economy forward, adding: “The union totally aligns itself with the transformative innovation of Gov. Peter Mbah”.


Ugwu noted that the state executive of ATRTU would continue to ensure peaceful environment in the state’s transport sector as well as cordial working relationship with the state government and the state’s Ministry of Transport.


“We are a peaceful, progressive and forward-looking union; and ATRTU is ready to cooperate with the state government to achieve its laudable visions and plans for the progress of the state in the transport sector,” he said.

Comrade Simeon Agbo, Branch Chairman of ATRTU in Enugu South LGA, urged the union members to stand firm on their right and not being intimidated by rumours and a faceless individual trying to overthrow a duly elected leadership of the union under any guise.

“We, the union members, have resolved and vowed to stand by the truth and our people-focused and union members-elected leadership.


“We urge everybody to deal directly with our present credible state leadership, led by our amiable Comrade Sunday Ozeh,” Agbo said.

Responding, the State Chairman of ATRTU, Comrade Sunday Ozeh, urged members of the union to maintain their peaceful disposition and atmosphere.

Ozeh admonished the union members to keep supporting and having good faith with the present administration in the state as he has utmost confidence in Gov. Peter Mbah leadership. (Flowerbudnews)
