Lagos - The Nigerian Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) on Tuesday, advised the Federal Government to evolve appropriate security measures to curb the activities of pipeline vandals.
The advice is contained in a statement signed by its Acting General Secretary, Mr Isaac Aberare in Lagos.
The union said that it was also pertinent for the government to repair vandalised pipelines in Arepo Village, in Ogun.
The statement said that with the repairs, tanker drivers would begin to supply fuel to Lagos, Ibadan and Ilorin axis.
NUPENG denied that it was responsible for the growing queues in filling stations in some parts of the country as was being speculated.
``The union is not on strike and the Petroleum Tanker Drivers are ever ready to lift products.’’
It said the union members were working but had no products to lift in some depots, because they were empty. NAN
