Fuel Scarcity Looms Again in Nigeria...See the States to be Affected

The south-south part of Nigeria is set to experience the biting crisis of fuel scarcity following a strike action. 

Residents of Rivers and Bayelsa states may face scarcity of Premium Motor Spirit also known as petrol as the Nigerian Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers has ordered owners of filling stations in the two states to shut down operations and join its ongoing strike, Punch reports.

The Acting Zonal Chairman of NUPENG, Port Harcourt Zone, Mr. Charles Eleto, told journalists in the Rivers State capital that the body would not spare any filling station that failed to comply with the shutdown order as sanctions would be meted on erring filling stations owners.

Eleto explained that the strike action by the NUPENG in the zone was prompted by the actions of four firms operating in Rivers and Bayelsa states.

He said, “In lieu of NUPENG’s ongoing strike in Rivers and Bayelsa states, all petrol station workers in these two states are hereby informed of the strike and they should be part of it as a solidarity. Injury to one is injury to all. In a situation where anyone is found wanting, the union will sanction them. I know that some filling stations have not joined the strike. That is why we are issuing this directive so that those who have not joined should immediately shut down the sales of petroleum products at their respective filling stations.

“The refinery has shut down, petroleum tanker drivers have shut down; the private depots have shut down, so, they (filling stations) should also join the strike by shutting down.”

He pleaded with governors of the two states and security agencies to prevail on the four companies to stop the victimisation of workers and recognise NUPENG as a union.
