Fuel scarcity looms as oil workers join strike

The supply and distribution of petroleum products across the country are under threat as the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers and the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Association have joined the strike ordered by the Nigeria Labour Congress.

The NLC on Wednesday directed all its members and affiliate unions to commence a nationwide strike on Thursday, following the failure of a meeting with the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, in Abuja on Wednesday, to produce the expected outcome.

A NUPENG spokesperson, Mr Adamson Momoh, said on Thursday, “We are part of the United Labour Congress; so, any decision that they take, we will abide by it.” The National Public Relations Officer, PENGASSAN, Mr Fortune Obi, also said the association had been directed to join the ongoing strike.
