NUPENG finally suspends its planned strike
There was a general release of tension among the populace in Nigeria after the National Union of Petroleum and Gas Workers (NUPENG) on Sunday announced the suspension of its planned strike.
The Petroleum Tanker Drivers (PTD) had earlier announced that it will embark on a strike due to the deplorable state of the nation’s highways and other issues.
It lamented that the union has lost many lives and property due to bad roads.
However, the strike, which would have kicked off on Monday, was shelved because of the intervention by the Federal Government.
Mr Tayo Aboyeji, the South-West Zonal Chairman of NUPENG, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos, said the suspension was to allow the union’s representatives and that of government to address the knotty issues at stake.

“The meeting with the government continues during the week with the assurance that the union grievances will be positively addressed,” he said.
