NUPENG CAUTIONS WABBA NOT TO DABBLE INTO OIL AND GAS ISSUES
The Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers have cautioned the factional President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) Comrade AyubaWabba, not to dabble into issues affecting oil and gas sector. The Union berated Comrade AyubaWabba for overstepping his bounds by threatening to ask workers to stay at home should the scarcity of fuel persist. NUPENG adds that the factional President of the NLC is not abreast with happenings in the oil and gas sector, as the issues are not related to medical and health workers. The Union warns that Comrade AyubaWabba has no business in making statements on an industry, he knows nothing about. NUPENG reiterates that Comrade Ayuba outburst that he will ask workers to stay at home is one of his antics for cheap popularity and propaganda. The Union advises him to focus on the challenges bedeviling the health sector, where they went on several strikes that had no effect for many months. NUPENG stresses that Comrade Ayuba should face reality and stop chasing the shadows by making empty promises on what he has no control over. The Union believes that the challenges facing the oil and gas sector can only be solved holistically by convening of a major stakeholders meeting with industry players to x-ray the issues and proffer lasting solutions that will stand the test of time. We however, strongly believe that the National Assembly will live up to her oversight function vis-à-vis the passage of the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB), the TAM of the Refineries and the security of our pipelines.
Comrade (Dr.) IgweAchese President
