The Petroleum Tanker Drivers, PTD, of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers, NUPENG, has debunked rumors making the rounds that its members are embarking on strike action. The National Chairman of PTD, Comrade Salimon Oladiti, while debunking the purported industrial action, in a statement, described it as false, unfounded and figment of imagination of the peddlers.
Oladiti explained that the union is dissociating itself from any form of industrial action and enjoined all members to continue in their strive to effectively distribute fuel products across the country. He commended the Government’s effort at ameliorating the hardship faced by Nigerians in the wake of the fuel scarcity and thus warned any member that joins in any strike action does so at his own risk.
