The Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers, NUPENG, has said its Petroleum Tanker Drivers had been mobilised to ensure no movement of petroleum tankers as their nationwide strike begins on Monday.
Tokunbo Korodo, the South-West Chairman of NUPENG Lagos Council, made the assertion on Sunday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, in Lagos.
Should the strike proceed as planned, it would lead to fuel scarcity and long queues in filling stations across Nigeria.
According to Mr. Korodo, all the tanker drivers have abandoned their trucks in respect of the indefinite strike which will begin on Monday unless the federal government intervenes.
The chairman said the drivers were forced to down tools due to unresolved issues concerning their welfare, poor remuneration, insecurity and bad roads.
