NUPENG ISSUES ULTIMATUM ON BAD ROADS
The Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) have issued an ultimatum to the Federal Government to rehabilitate its roads in Port Harcourt.
The ultimatum which expires on Monday next week, June 19, will see the Union withdrawing its services in the delivery of petroleum products in Rivers State and its environs.
The Union states that the bad roads yearning for quick rehabilitation are bad spots on the East/West road, Akpajo junction, Police security check posts, road opposite NNPC housing estate, intelcamp and fugiro along Aba-Port Harcourt Express way.
It adds that the bad spots on these roads have become death traps and posing danger and threat to tankers, trailers and the general public who ply the roads.
The Union also states that these bad spots have become accident-prone and that urgent steps must be taken to rehabilitate them.
NUPENG stress that it cannot allow its members to risk their lives and other members of the public who ply the road day and night with hazardous and inflammable products like petrol, kerosene and diesel.
The Union has therefore mobilized its members to withdraw its services and stop delivery of petroleum products from Monday, next week, if no measure is taken to address the challenge.
