NUPENG Scribe Wants LASG’s Intervention in Petroleum Tanker Drivers’ Strike

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Mr Adebayo Hassan, Secretary, National Union of Petroleum and National Gas Workers (NUPENG) Sango-Ota Chapter, has appealed to the Lagos State Government (LASG) to urgently intervene in the strike by the Petroleum Tanker Drivers that started on Monday.
Hassan made the appeal on Monday in Ota, Ogun.
The Petroleum Tanker Drivers in Lagos State  on Monday  withdrew their services as directed by the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG).
The state Chairman, NUPENG, Mr Tayo Aboyeji, confirmed the development on Monday in Lagos.
Hassan said the appeal became necessary because the lives of their members were more important than work.
“We are appealing to the Lagos State Government to quickly intervene and put everything under control”.
He alleged that some of the security officials deployed in Apapa had been a major problem to the union’s drivers.
Hassan, said the security officials were not always coming to the aid of their members whenever they were attacked by hoodlums.
“These security personnel used to maltreat our drivers when they refused to yield to their demands. It takes our drivers between a week and two to load at the Apapa depot because of the bottlenecks created by the security officials”.
Hassan also alleged that the activities of the security personnel were part of the causes of gridlocks usually experienced by drivers at Apapa and its environs.
Hassan urged the public not to panic, assuring them that the strike would be addressed and resolved by the appropriate authorities.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
