Oluomo-led Lagos Park Administration: Sanwo-olu To Appeal Judgement


The Lagos State Government says it has applied for the Certified True Copy of the court judgment nullifying the appointment of the Lagos State Park Administrators Ad-Hoc Committee by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, with the intention to file an appeal.

The National Industrial Court of Nigeria (NICN) sitting in Lagos had on Tuesday voided the appointment of the committee.

Justice Maureen Esowe held that the suspension of the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN) in the state was illegal, and ordered the reinstatement of RTEAN.

The state government had suspended the operations of RTEAN in September 2022 and constituted a 35-man caretaker committee to take over the operations of the union.

But in its ruling, the industrial court also restrained the state government from further meddling in the activities of the union’s exco.

RTEAN in suit marked NICN/LA/381/2022, had challenged the dissolution of its executive council by the Lagos State government.

The first three of the 27 defendants in the suit were Lagos State Governor, the state’s Attorney-General; and the governor’s Special Adviser on Transportation, Sola Giwa.
