Abuja - Fuel supplies have run dry in Abuja due to a strike by oil workers.
Workers under the umbrella of Nigerian Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (Nupeng) has asked its members to embark on a warning strike in protest of poor state of roads across the nation and alleged unfair labour practices by multinational oil companies.
A survey CAJ News ran established only stations run by the national authority were selling fuel in Abuja in isolated refuelling stations.
Major fuel stations across Abuja were shut down after receiving directive from Nupeng.
A petrol attendant, Amaka Uche, in one of the stations told CAJ News that other fuel stations were not selling due to a Nupeng directive.
Residents in the capital city were concerned that the situation might get worse in the next few days.
They appealed to authorities to settle their differences with Nupeng to resolve the strike. - CAJ News
