Fresh fuel crisis looms as PENGASSAN threatens strike

Nigeria may be plunged into another round of fuel scarcity as the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN), has threatened to resume its suspended strike if the federal government refuses to enforce the implementation of an agreement reached among the tripartite partners in the industry.

In a letter addressed to the Minister of Labour and Productivity dated August 22, 2016 and signed by the acting General Secretary, PENGASSAN, Comrade Lumumba IghotemuOkugbawa, stated that since the agreement was signed over a month ago, there was not much progress or commitment towards implementing the tenets of the agreement.
