Fuel Scarcity Looms As NUPENG Threatens Strike
It seems Nigerians will have to start bracing up for fuel scarcity.
The leadership of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) are threatening to withdraw fuel supply to the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and its environs.
The workers said they are downing tools over disagreement with the Assets Management Company of Nigeria (AMCON).
Addressing newsmen on the outcome of its National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting in Abuja on Thursday, NUPENG’s President, Igwe Achese said the living conditions of Nigerians are very poor, the economy in shambles and the recession seems endless.
He called on President Muhammadu Buhari to dissolve his cabinet for non-performance, saying that it is high time the President injected new blood that could rescue the nation.
Achese hoped that the two weeks grace which NUPENG had extended to the government may attract the necessary intervention.
