The letter added that further directives would be communicated to the union on or before Friday, October 13, 2023.

The minister’s directive comes amidst a leadership crisis rocking the NURTW, which has led to clashes between the two factions.

Recently, a faction of the union led by Alhaji Tajudeen Agbede forcefully took over the National Secretariat of the union located at Garki 2 and dislodged the incumbent President, Alhaji Tajudeen Ibikunle Baruwa.
