On the imposition of PARK MANAGERS by some state governments , especially in the south west, Professor Baruwa said the plans of those people was to use the so called PARK MANAGERS as avenue to recruit thugs to prosecute next year elections.

“NURTW is a trade union organisation and we are not affiliated to any political party and we don’t allow our members to drag us into partisan politics. Any member who is interested in vying for political office is allowed to apply for leave of absence. We don’t allow members to use our name for politics,” he added.
