Anambra suffers strike by petroleum workers

03 October 2016, 10:30Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - The Amalgamated Consumer Coalition Enforcement Association (ACCEA), a non-governmental organisation, has bemoaned the strike by unions in the petroleum industry as causing unnecessary hardships on consumers in Anambra State.

The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) and Petroleum Distributors Association of Nigeria (PEDAN) engaged on the strike demanding better working conditions.

“The action of the petroleum marketers is unprovoked, reckless and a blackmail on the consumers who are paying for the sins of exploitative unions who do not care about others,” said ACCEA President, Ikpedi Obumneme.

“How can we explain a situation where the petroleum dealers stopped sales without warning just because their colleague had issues with officials of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps?” asked Obumneme.

He called on IPMAN and PEDAN to call off the strike.
