Golden Penny Wants You to WIN N1M Worth of Prizes & Cash

The National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) has suspended its planned strike.

Tayo Aboyeji, the south-west zonal chairman of NUPENG, disclosed this yesterday in an interview with NAN.

The development comes about 24 hours after the union announced plans to embark on strike, over the “shameful state of roads in the country”.

NUPENG had said the strike became necessary because it has lost many members and properties due to dilapidated roads.

But the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) had appealed to the union to shelve the planned strike as it will negatively affect energy security.

Speaking yesterday, Aboyeji said the planned strike by NUPENG and its affiliate association — the petroleum tanker drivers (PTD) — has been suspended in the interest of Nigerians.

Aboyeji also said the suspension of the strike will allow the government to address the issues raised by the union.
