Motorcycle riders union warn Nigerians against activities of impostors



Joel Ajayi

The motorcycle riders union has called on Nigerians to be mindful of the activities of some impostors in their midst, while warning the Federal Government and even the general public to desist from dealing with them in whatever capacity.

The National President of the union, Comrade Julius Ogenewevgba Bobi, FCPAN who stated this in a press statement made available to our reporters Wednesday evening however stated that all those involved in trying to destabilize the union through their illegal action have all been suspended.

He therefore pleads with the Nigerian Government and the general public to desist from dealing with them in whatever ways that relate to the motorcycle riders union. He declared that all those involved in the palace coup are considered as impersonators, and have all been notified of their suspension from the union.

He appealed to those concerned to desist from parading themselves as officials of the union, while threatening that failure to harcken to the appeal the union would be forced to take legal action against them.

Throwing more light on the issue, Comrade Bobi maintained that having previously given approval to the Special National Delegates Conference to be held, his attention was drawn to the fact that such was in clear violation of the constitution of their Union.

“In resorting to the constitution of the union to which I swore an oath of allegiance under penalty of perjury as was insisted by some members who wrote to draw my attention to it, I discovered that the supposedly fixed Special National Delegates Conference is in clear deviance to our constitution hence we do not have any provision for the appellation “Special Delegates Congress” as was tagged; in clear terms of which I wrote a letter suspending it until further notice pursuant to the power vested on me as the National President with reference to Rule 8 subsection 1 of our constitution which states that “a Special National Delegates Conference shall be held at such time and venue as the National Executive Council may decide on the receipt of a request from the National President or a resolution adopted by a two-third (2/3) majority of the State Councils calling for such a conference.

The resolution shall be forwarded to the General Secretary and National President of the Union”.

“To my greatest surprise, the “Special National Delegates Congress” still held with the firm support of the Assistant General Secretary of NLC, Comrade Denja Yaqub who, prior to the meeting and receipt of the notification for the cancellation of the meeting, staged an unwarranted argument with me, vehemently opposing its cancellation on grounds of late notification,”

MOUN national President explained the effort he made to manage the situation but maintained that from everything that happened it was obvious that the situation was premeditated.

“I must of necessity state very poignantly that I made all necessary efforts to settle the differences between us to no avail. Relentlessly too, I sent people who are aware of the feud to mediate between us, but they bluntly refused to grant them audience nor were available to meet with them; all because they have a clearly premeditated agenda of truncating the newly birthed union so they might be able to have their way as rebels,” he concluded.
