NNPC assures warning strike by oil workers won’t disrupt distribution of products

The NNPC has assured that the three-day warning strike embarked upon by members of the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria and the Nigerian Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers will not disrupt distribution of petroleum products to members of the public.

This assurance was at the backdrop of long queue of vehicles that resurfaced at the most filling stations in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, and its environs, this morning on account of the strike announced by the union bodies.

The corporation in a statement issued by its Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Mr. Ohi Alegbe, advised fuel consumers to avoid panic buying or stock piling of petroleum products as that could lead to needless queues or cause fire accidents that could lead to loss of lives and property.

The NNPC noted that it was in talks with the leadership of the unions who gave the assurance that they would not disrupt the fuel supply and distribution system as the strike was basically aimed at addressing the anti-labour issues by some of the International Oil Companies.
