Following the aborted 7th quadrennial delegates conference of the Nigeria Union Of Local Government Employees, NULGE, in Oyo State, the State President, Oyo Branch, Comrade Bayo Titilola-Sodo, has appealed to members, particularly delegates to remain calm and exercise restraint.
Titilola-Sodo in a release he personally signed and made available to journalists in Ibadan, accepted the responsibilities for the ugly incident, stating that all modalities undertaken to organise the aborted conference from preparatory stage were in accordance with the Amended Constitution 2016 of the union.
He assured that the case instituted by some members at the National Industrial Court (NIC), Ibadan Judicial Division, to stop the conference, would be vacated at the next hearing date, noting that the members had run foul of Rule 5:vi as enshrined in its constitution.
The Oyo State NULGE president, who doubles as the Chairman, Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, in the state, said the Amended Constitution 2016 provisions empowered only branch executives to be delegates.
It will be recalled that the 7th Quadrennial Delegates Conference of the state NULGE had reached an advance stage where ballot papers were being sorted when the Presiding Electoral Official from the national headquarters announced the suspension of the process on account of a court injunction.
