Nigerians have stormed social media to express their discontentment with the National Union of Road Transportation Workers (NURTW), Musiliu Akinsanya, better known as MC Oluomo, who said members of the union can be compared to lawyers, engineers and doctors in terms of professionalism.
For your information, NURTW is a profession just like Law, engineering and Medical. We are not thugs but we are professionals.

Naija news learnt that MC Oluomo had made the statement while complaining about how Nigerians on Twitter call him abgero and still come back to ask him for financial help.
According to him, the National Union of Transport Workers is a profession just like law, engineering. He had stated that NURTW workers are not thugs but professionals.
NURTW is NOT a profession.
It is a blight of our dysfunctional society. A society that has elevated thuggery, drug & alcohol abuse, extortion & murder to a place of political relevance by empowering the main actors like you, @mc_Oluomo1, to become a quasi govt agency.#THUGS

Since NURTW is a profession just like law, engineering and medicine, according to MC Oluomo, how then should they be addressed?
