NUPENG threatens to suspend fuel loading

23 May 2016, 16:04

Ogun - The National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers have threatened to shut down loading activity, if the Federal Government fails to repair the Sagamu–Ikorodu road leading to Mosimi Depot, Ogun State, PM News reports.

Lagos Zonal Chairman of NUPENG Tokunbo Korodo made this known at the inauguration of the secretariat of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), Mosimi Unit.

The Mosimi depot supplies petroleum product to Lagos, Ogun and some states in the Southwest.

Korodo lamented that despite the significant amount of money the government gets from the depot, the road has remained in a bad shape.

He warned that NUPENG would suspend loading of fuel for Lagos and Ogun consumers as well as adjourning states in the Southwest, if the poor state of the road persists.

Speaking on the state of the road, according to Businessday the NUPENG leader in the South West said “the state of Sagamu-Ikorodu road is in a very bad shape and very sympathetic. This is where Nigerian government is getting volume of money from Mosimi depot, and the road that is doing that is not well rehabilitated.”

He added that NUPENG would not hesitate suspending loading of fuel for the people in Lagos and Ogun states as well as other adjourning states within the South West if the road was not repaired by the Federal Government to ease sufferings attached to haulage of petroleum product to other parts of the country.
