Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria, RTEAN, has pledged it readiness in providing logistical support for the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, for the 2019 general elections.
Alhaji Yusuf Ibrahim Adeniyi, National Secretary General of the association made this know in a chat with newsmen, yesterday.
According to him, the inability of his Union to sign the Memorandum of Understanding, MoU with INEC was because the invitation didn’t reach the association on time because the person who represented RTEAN couldn’t deliver the invitation ahead of time and the president was not in town
According to him “I had to lead our delegation to the venue. At the venue I explained to the chairman of the INEC that I was the only one available and asked him if I could sign on behalf of my chairman. He said no. He said unless the president and myself come back and we now agreed that RTEAN would skip their signing the MoU and go back to office to make proper preparation towards signing the document. That was what happened, we did not refuse or deliberately refused to attend the event to sign the MoU”.
Speaking further, Alhaji Adeniyi said RTEAN have met with INEC and every machinery has been put in place and in due course, INEC will invite the association officially. So we will sign on a new date and Nigerians will see it.
“Already We are in the process; we will participate, RTEAN will participate 100 per cent and you will see it. There is no doubt about that.”
