Fuel scarcity looms as PENGASSAN plan to go on strike from July 7th

The leadership of the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria, PENGASSAN has instructed its members around the country to abandon their duty posts from Thursday July 7th and proceed on strike action. If this directive is sustained, another looming fuel scarcity is imminent.

In a statement signed by its acting general secretary, Lumumba Okugbawa, PENGASSAN blamed the proposed strike on the Federal Government’s inability to honor their agreement contained in a May 12, 2016 communiqué.

PENGASSAN had on June 19th condemned the sack of some of its workers in some oil corporations in Nigeria and had given the Federal government a 7-day ultimatum to intervene and failure to do so would result in a full scale strike action. The seven-day ultimatum lapsed on last Wednesday, June 27th.
