The Group Managing Director (GMD), Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC Maikanti Baru, is 'on his knees'.

He is urging oil workers to halt their planned strike over a labour dispute involving Chevron Nigeria Limited (CNL) management and the staff.

The unions are National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) and the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN).

Baru made the appeal in a statement by NNPC’s Group Public Affairs Manager, Ndu Ughamadu, in Abuja on Sunday.

He appealed to the unions not to do anything that would disrupt the industrial harmony that had pervaded away inadvertently.

He however expressed optimism that the current dispute would be settled amicably.
