Nigeria Oil Sector To Shut Down Over Unfair Labour Practices

NUPENG President, Achese Igwe

Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) on Monday in Lagos threatened to stop fuel distribution and shut down the nation?s oil sector over alleged unfair labour practices by major oil marketers and multi-national oil companies in Nigeria.

In a statement by its President, Achese Igwe, the union said: ?NUPENG has watched with great concern the activities of oil majors and multi-nationals in the industry and warns of imminent fuel scarcity if their nefarious activities are not checked by embarking on nation-wide strike without notice.”

?The new drive of the oil majors and multi-nationals amounts to sabotage and that if not controlled will lead to an unhealthy atmosphere in the sector.   We call on Mr. President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, the Minister of Labour and the National Assembly to quickly intervene before the bubble bursts.?
