The National President of National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, Alhaji Gidado Hamman, has vowed that the Union will resist the Federal Government’s proposed deregulation of the petroleum downstream sector of the nation’s economy, even as he called for the establishment of a Transport Bank to savage the transport sector.

Gidado said NURTW would join the organized labour to adopt decisive measures to thwart the policy from being implemented.

The NURTW President who, spoke to newsmen in Yola yesterday observed that the planned deregulation in the country would no doubt unleash adverse effects on Nigerians both in the short and long run.
