Latest News as Tanker Driver Begin Nationwide Strike, Fuel Scarcity Looms Nationwide




Here is fresh news as the Petroleum Tankers Drivers (PTD), an arm of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), has vowed to commence a nationwide strike tomorrow.



It is reported as NUPENG’s President, Igwe Achese, announced this in a communiqué at the weekend in Lagos at the end of its Central Working Committee (CWC) meeting.

He said the strike would draw attention of the federal government and other stakeholders to some unresolved issues bordering on the welfare of
workers such as bad roads, poor remuneration, insecurity and alleged excesses of some security agencies.

“To avert the pains and discomfort the action might cause, the CWC-in-Session calls on the federal government to urgently intervene and apprehend the unfortunate situation to enable NARTO meet its obligations to tanker drivers,” the communiqué said.

The tanker drivers called on the National Assembly to urgently pass the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) to tackle corruption plaguing the oil sector.

They also demanded commercialisation of the operations of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) as well as the Turn Around Maintenance (TAM) of refineries.
The union also vowed to resist any attempt to increase the pump price of petrol.
