Fuel scarcity worsens across Nigeria

11 March 2016, 06:40

Lagos – The suspension of the industrial action by oil workers across the country has reportedly done nothing to relieve motorists of the pains they have been experiencing in the past two weeks due to shortage of petrol.

According to Punch, filling stations in Lagos continued to record long queues of motorists, who were joined by those who wanted to use the commodity to fuel their generators, as a result of the prolonged blackoput.

The situation was the same in Abuja, Kaduna, Ogun and Nasarawa, the report said.

Oil unions workers under the umbrella of Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) and the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) called off their one-day-old strike on Thursday.

The workers suspended the strike after a meeting with the minister of state for petroleum resources, Ibe Kachikwu.
The unions had embarked on strike following the misinterpretation of the unbundling of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).

Kachikwu assured them that there was no unbundling of NNPC, but only restructuring and re-organization.
