That the Nigerian Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) is a key player in Nigerian politics is not in doubt even as many observers accuse it of being a tool of violence and intimidation used by politicians.
However, there is freedom of association in Nigeria and every lawful organisation or association is free to support candidates of its choice during an election.
Perhaps, having this in mind, NURTW Lagos chapter has announced its endorsement of Lagos state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode for a second term. The union made this announcement via a Facebook post on its account stating:

Governor Ambode must be delighted to have the support of this key group.
