NUPENG Drops Proposed Petrol Tanker Drivers’ Strike



The leadership of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) has announced the suspension of the intended withdrawal of the services of Petroleum Tanker Drivers earlier scheduled to commence midnight of Sunday.

In a statement, the union said the suspension followed an agreement reached with the union by the management of NNPC at a meeting in Ibadan, Oyo State Capital on Sunday and the expected outcome of the follow- up meeting scheduled to hold on Tuesday, in Abuja.

President, Comrade William Akporeha and General Secretary, Comrade Afolabi Olawale both signed the statement.

He explained to concerned citizens who had appealed to the union on the issue that the planned strike was not intended to inflict further pains on Nigerians but to ensure observance of minimum safety on highways.
