Comrade Akporeha in his remarks reaffirmed his thought that the new General Secretary and the Deputy General Secretaries with their robust antecedents for more than two decades will no doubt continue to add value to the growth of the Union.

He however encouraged the staff who were just confirmed to redouble their dedication, loyalty, and hardwork to help the Union succeed, and that they must be willing to grow and set aside their own priorities for the sake of the Union’s long-term advancement.

He further stressed that the trust and high optimism showcased by the new staff in the last one year towards meeting NUPENG goals should not be relaxed, rather they must insist to initiate actions that will make them become highly productive to accomplish tasks beyond their job description for the overall good of the Union, adding that there is reward for hardwork and compliance to the ethics and core values of the Union.

Women’s Day: IndustriALL Global Union in Nigeria Takes ‘Balance For Better’ Advocacy To Streets

By Emmanuel Ajibulu

As the world marks 2019 edition of International Women’s Day, women in trade Unions in Nigeria, under the aegis of IndustriALL Global Union in unison came out in their large numbers on Thursday March 7, 2019 to drive home the theme of their anniversary (Gender) ”Balance For Better”.

The enthusiastic female unionists all clad in branded IndustriALL white, black and red T-Shirts, led by globally recognized rights activist, Josephine Obiajulu Odumakin (otherwise addressed as Joe Odumakin), the Chairperson, IndustriALL National Women Committee, Comrade Oluchi Amaogu and National Chairperson, NUPENG Women Committee, Comrade Thelma Ndukwe marched and danced round the neighborhoods of Jibowu and Yaba axis of Lagos, amidst drums and trumpets.

Addressing the gathering in her welcome message at the NUPENG Lagos zonal office in Fadeyi right after the advocacy parade on the streets, Comrade Oluchi said: “Today IndustriALL global union uses International Women’s Day to demand sensitivity and accountability on the part of all stakeholders across board to obliterate the plight of women and girl child and ensuring that there is room for ‘balance for better’.

I’m always passionate about the woman and her overall well-being and of course IndustriALL is always interested in growth in family life, career, health and other areas and therefore will continue to provide platforms and support programmes that will help women and their various concerns. This value-packed initiative will help women learn essential lessons which can be applied to their daily lives and career and also help us become all we want to be and be the best at it. I am also happy that we have some secondary school students with us today who are obviously open to an opportunity to learn from us and apply the learning to their daily engagements in order to better their future and positively influence their peers”

Comrade Issa Aremu, Vice President, IndustriALL Global Union on his part said, “IndustriALL Global Union of which I’m a Vice President representing our dear continent demands that all workers should enjoy equal rights. Sadly all female and young workers still remain subject to discrimination. They are being denied their fundamental rights. IndustriALL fights their discrimination at work and union by promoting their fairer and stronger participation in trade unions.”

The seasoned trade unionist who was unavoidably absent at the event due to his guber campaigns ahead of Saturday March 9 polls in Kwara State, was represented by Comrade Ruth Balogun, who on his behalf read the Union leader’s lucid and very insightful speech.

“Violence against women in the workplace was a key topic when the IndustriALL Women Committee met in Colombo, Sri Lanka on 7 November last year. The Committee reinforced its support for a campaign to fight against violence and harassment against women in the workplace.

IndustriALL Executive Committee calls on affiliates to take the pledge to combat violence against women and take active steps to implement its commitments.” Whilst emphasizing on the need for the women to take full responsibility, he charged them to “Take the pledge!”

Highlighting the pledge in specific terms, Aremu in his read speech said, “To take a public stand against all forms of violence and harassment against women and to condemn all attitudes and actions that perpetuate sexism and violence;

“To take up the issue as a priority in our union and to allocate the necessary resources for activities aimed at preventing and combating this violation of women’s rights;

“To foster a culture of respect for women within our union by raising the awareness of our members, staff and officials and providing education on the importance of eradicating violence and harassment in the workplace and in our union;

“To encourage our members to actively take a stand against violence and harassment against women, especially in their own workplaces.”

He added, “To organize campaigns aimed at preventing and combating violence against women;
“To demand that governments enact and enforce laws to protect women from violence;

“To demand that employers develop policies against all forms of violence and harassment at work, and promote awareness among their employees on the devastating impacts of violence against women and the importance of eradicating it;

“To demand that employers develop concrete policies and procedures to prevent and combat all forms of violence against women in their premises and supply chains, and establish safe mechanisms for women to turn to if they are assaulted or attacked at work; to include demands for the eradication of violence and harassment against women in our collective bargaining claims.” Aremu stressed.

Meanwhile, Dr Joe Odumakin President, “Women Arise for Change Initiative” during her presentation which was hinged on the anniversary theme, said women abilities make them equal humans to their male counterparts.

She advised women to ensure that they broke the culture of silence, which according to her, imposes a lot of reactionary culture of suppression on them. She also urged women to make education their priorities, saying that an educated mind, anywhere, “is a liberated mind”.

The female rights activist also decried low turnout of women participation in politics, “Women supporting women is good for the society” she noted that, with the population of Nigerian women averaged 50 percent of its total populace, it would also be nice if there are more women manning the political and appointive public service positions of the country.

She quoted the National Gender Policy (NGP) saying that, “In Nigeria, the extant NGP recommended 35 percent affirmative action instead and sought for a more inclusive representation of women with at least 35 percent of both elective political and appointive public service positions respectively, it will not be a bad idea if we surpass the percentage.”

According to her, “In 2007, there are eight female Senators out of 109 available seats, while in the House of Representative, out of 360 available seats, we have 23 which are women. The number of female Senators in the nation dropped to seven in 2011 while that of the Green chamber increased by just three. Currently, we have only eight female Senators, while in the HOR, the number declined further to 19.”

She regretted that majority of Nigerians erroneously bear negative mindsets about the concept of gender equality. “They think women are demanding equality with men, but that is not true; what we are asking for is equal opportunities.

She said in addition to the premise of the day was to raise awareness of the fact that women around the world are subject to rape, domestic violence and other forms of violence.

“Furthermore, one of the aims of the day is to highlight that the scale and true nature of the issue is often hidden. One major way of eliminating violence against women is the implementation of various guidelines and legislations that have been created toward tackling the menace of violence against women.

“We also need to increase the capacity of our law enforcement agencies, educate the citizens more than we are currently doing, and ultimately, our society must criminalise all forms of actions of violence against women,” she said.

She advised all the arms of governments to ensure that women, being the highest population in the country were made to leave freely and without fear. She admonished women to discover the strength that existed not only in their numbers.

For the women in trade Unions in Nigeria, they urged women to remain resilient in their demand for equal opportunities, describing this year’s theme, “Balance For Better”, as a nod to the growing global movement of advocacy, activism and support surrounding gender parity.

Among the group were the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN), National Union of Chemical, Footwear and Non-Metallic Workers (NUCFRLANMPE), National Union Of Electricity Employees (NUEE), Steel And Engineering Workers Union Of Nigeria (SEWUN), Chemical and Non Metallic Products Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (CANMPSSAN) etc.

It would be recalled that International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8 every year to commemorate the movement for women’s rights. The first observance of the Day was held on Feb.28, 1909 in New York, while March 8 was suggested by the 1910 International Woman’s Conference for the event to become an “International Woman’s Day.

PTD National Chairman, Comrade Akanni Oladiti Commissions Emadeb Unit Office, As He Extols Union’s Virtues

The National Chairman of Petroleum Tanker Drivers branch of Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers [NUPENG] has again displayed an uncommon generosity of spirit to promote the policy thrust of the Union during the official commissioning of Emadeb PTD Unit office on Saturday, March 2nd 2019 at Satellite Town, Ijegun, Lagos.

The astute and highly revered unionist also used the occasion to acknowledge that the Union has made a lot of institutional reforms and that it will remain committed in pursuing the agenda of taking the Union to the next level with the resolve to record far reaching positive milestones.

According to Comrade Oladiti at the commissioning;

“Gone are the days that tanker drivers are seen as nobody or quacks, today by the grace of God we are among key stakeholders to be reckoned with whenever government at any level wants to introduce or implement any programme or policy in the nation’s oil and gas sector.

Under my leadership you will all recall that PTD now owns a world class hotel at the nation’s capital in Abuja and I make bold to tell you that very soon we will soon be commissioning our filing stations among other life impacting investments. We now have a Union that we all can be proud of.

He continued, “Gentlemen and ladies, I feel highly elated today that Emabed Unit of PTD achieved this enviable mark by erecting this beautiful ultra modern edifice that can be called an office, and as you can see its very befitting, the era of using canopies, kiosks and abandoned containers as office is gone for good. I am really proud of this Unit and I urge others to emulate this shinning example, NUPENG and particularly PTD must be known for excellence in all ramifications.

However the Chairman of Emadeb PTD Unit who doubles as Lagos Zonal Chairman of PTD, Comrade Olabisi Akinlolu used the occasion to thank the National Chairman for his physical presence as well as delivery of his goodwill message that was attributed to the commissioning of the Unit’s house. He urged members to always think about the Union first above any other interest and that they must respect the rules of engagement at all times.

“I return all glory and honour to God, it’s not our making at all, if God doesn’t build a house the builders will only labour in vain. I want all of us not to renege in adhering to good conscience in the overall interest of this great Union.” Comrade Akinlolu stated.

Others who registered their presence at the event which coincided with the quarterly meeting of the Lagos Zonal council of PTD were, Comrade Solomon Kilanko (National Deputy President of NUPENG) Comrade Tayo Aboyeji, (Chairman Lagos Zonal Council of NUPENG), PTD Lagos Zonal Council Deputy 1, Alhaji Saheed Adigun Gbolahan, Zonal Secretary, Alhaji Lawal Abidoye, Alhaji Tokunbo Korodo, Baale of Ijegun-Egba, High Chief Akogun Raheem Alade Olojede, etc.

NUPENG and PENGASSAN will also not renege in continuing to cooperate and work assiduously with the administration of President Buhari’s government during his second term in his determined efforts to diversify our economy and optimally rehabilitate our refineries as being exhibited by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation,
NNPC Management and Staff so as to reinforce and consolidate on the gains of all wonderful socio/economic and political initiatives, policies and programmes in the interest of Nigerian masses.

NUPENG President—Comrade Akporeha, Acting GS Comrade Afolabi ”Pay Thank you Visit” To General Gowon

The National President of Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), Comrade (Prince) Williams Akporeha on Friday (February 8, 2019) paid a ”thank you visit” to General Yakubu Gowon in Abuja to show appreciation to the octogenarian’s gesture of honouring the Union’s 40th anniversary which held in December, 2018.

The President who went in company of the Union’s General Secretary (Ag.), Comrade Afolabi Olawale was humbled and overwhelmed by the esteemed presence of the elderstatesman who was the anniversary Chairman and also for contributing immensely to the success of the epochal event.

Apart from the President and the GS, Comrade Alex Stephen [Principal Organising Secretary], the Union’s Abuja liaison officer was also present during the ‘thank you visit’ to the  highly revered ex-general.

In retrospect, General Yakubu Gowon at the event lauded NUPENG for her role in the development of the oil and gas sector in Nigeria and urged NUPENG to address image challenges facing the union as most Nigerians see the her as a very powerful union that can hold the whole nation to a standstill over industrial strikes.

He recalled NUPENG’s contribution to fighting for the growth of democracy in Nigeria adding that the sustenance of Nigeria economy depends largely on NUPENG’s contributions to the growth of the oil sector which remains largely the country’s source of revenue.
Gratitude they say is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul; Robert Brault also added, “Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.” Truly, the expressions of thanks tend to deepen the bonds between the giver and the recipient, the gesture of the Union executive leadership followed the script.

NUPENG, PENGASSAN Commend President Buhari’s Flagoff Of Oil Exploration In Bauchi State

The Nigerian Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) and Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association (PENGASSAN) have expressed satisfaction with the flag-off and official commencement of crude oil search in the Kolmani Well River-II.

The area is located near Barambu, Alkaleri Local Government Area of Bauchi State.

Francis Johnson, PENGASSAN president and Williams Akporeha, NUPENG president in a joint statement on Sunday, said the development showed President Muhammadu Buhari’s commitment to grow Nigeria’s economy, boost capacity and provide energy sufficiency, strengthen Nigeria’s oil and gas industry.

It said the initiative will go a long way in galvanizing the current government’s national drive for job creation, youths empowerment and human capital development.

The statement, however, appealed to the administration to accelerate the final executive assent to the entire Petroleum Industry Bill.

“In this Bill, roles and accountability are better clarified; governance and transparency strengthened and inefficiency, maladministration, corruption and secrecy are accordingly tackled, these are quite important and must be upheld”, it added.

“We further believe that when passed, it would end unnecessary political interference in the sector and optimize value chain in the upstream, midstream and downstream of the petroleum industry, and as well separate the roles of the policy maker from the regulator and from the commercial institutions.

“This historic flag off is without doubt, a full demonstration of Nigerians resilience, doggedness and determination, and the entire productive oil and gas workers are very proud of this great achievement and we promise to keep raising the bar with other committed stakeholders.”

The statement in full:

JOINT PRESS STATEMENT OF NUPENG & PENGASSAN:

NUPENG AND PENGASSAN COMMEND FEDERAL GOVERNMENT CRUDE OIL EXPLORATION FLAG OFF IN BAUCHI STATE

The leadership of Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) and Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association (PENGASSAN) are profoundly pleased with the flag-off and official commencement of crude oil search in the Kolmani Well River-II, located near Barambu, Alkaleri Local Government Area of Bauchi State.

This latest milestone recorded by the government of President Muhammadu Buhari is undoubtedly a reflection of his government resolve and commitment to grow Nigeria’s economy, boost capacity and provide energy sufficiency, strengthen Nigeria’s oil and gas industry.

Certainly, this initiative will go a long way in galvanizing the current government’s national drive for jobs creation, youths empowerment and human capital development.

We equally found it worthy to extend our commendations to the Honourable Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu, the hard working Group Managing Director, NNPC, Dr Maikanti Baru, and their entire team for making February 2, 2019 epochal in the annals of Nigerian history, posterity will surely judge you kindly for being a part of this major and significant breakthrough in our national life.

The untiring and fantastic efforts of our irrepressible members to the realization of the noble dream are also highly commendable and we praise their uncommon contributions to the growth and development of our dear country.

There is no iota of doubt in our minds that Nigerian workers have capacity and ability to deliver even much more than their counterparts in other climes when given the right tools and right working environment/conditions to do so.

However, as key stakeholders in the industry, we urge and appeal to this listening administration to accelerate the final executive assent to the entire Petroleum Industry Bill.

In this Bill, roles and accountability are better clarified; governance and transparency strengthened and inefficiency, maladministration, corruption and secrecy are accordingly tackled, these are quite important and must be upheld.

We further believe that when passed, it would end unnecessary political interference in the sector and optimize value chain in the upstream, midstream and downstream of the petroleum industry, and as well separates the roles of the policy maker from the regulator and from the commercial institutions.
