NUPENG To Embark On An Indefinite Strike From Monday

On Friday, Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) said Petroleum tanker drivers may withdraw their services from Lagos from Monday.

This directive is as a result of the failure to address three major issues causing tanker drivers pains in the state for months.

The union is also protesting the deplorable state of the roads and alarming extortion of tanker drivers by security operatives in Lagos and its environs.

In a statement titled: ”“NUPENG leadership directs withdrawal of services by petroleum tanker drivers in Lagos State with effect from Monday, August 10, 2020.”

Williams Akporeha, NUPENG National President and Olawale Afolabi,General Secretary said;

“The entire rank and file members of the union are deeply pained, frustrated and agonised by the barrage of these challenges being consistently faced by petroleum tanker drivers in Lagos State and are left with no other option but to direct the withdrawal of their services in Lagos State until the Lagos State Government and other relevant stakeholders address these critical challenges.

“It is sad and disheartening to note here that we had made several appeals and reports to the Lagos State Government and the Presidential Task Force for the decongestion of Apapa on these challenges but all to no avail.

“We cannot afford to fold our arms while our members are being consistently and continually extorted, intimidated, harassed and victimized by different groups and segments in Lagos, hence we highlight to the general public the following three major challenges Petroleum Tanker Drivers are facing in Lagos State

“We resolved to embark on an indefinite strike beginning from 12 am, Monday, August 10, 2020 if there are no decisive and convincing actions from the Lagos State Government to address these concerns and challenges.”
