NUPENG Begins Massive Supply Of Petroleum Products in Rivers


The National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers of Nigeria, NUPENG,  has declared  that there will be no scarcity of petroleum products  in Rivers State  as the union will continue to  discharge  its responsibilities  of supplying products.

This  is as the Rivers State Government in conjunction  with Indorama Plc will reconstruct the damaged  portion of the East West road, stretching  from Eleme Junction to Refinery Junction.

The Rivers State Government will also reconstruct  the Port Harcourt -Aba Federal Road, along the Oyigbo axis

Addressing journalists on Friday  after meeting with the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike at the Government House Port Harcourt, National Industrial Relations Officer of NUPENG, Comrade Bassey Harry declared that having met with the governor, the union will cooperate with the administration  as it is committed to fixing the two Federal roads.

He said that following the agreement  reached with Governor Wike, NUPENG will use her platforms to supply products to all local government areas of the state.

NUPENG commended Governor Wike for  the initial reconstruction of the East West Road, which  was a death trap at the time he assumed duty as the governor of the state.

He said: “We understand the effort of the governor.  We took into consideration that when he came into office, the area we are mentioning today was like a death trap. But within six months in office, 80 percent of the road was fixed by him.

“With him, that road as promised will be fixed as soon as possible.  We are prepared to cooperate with him to see how that road will be fixed . There will be no fuel scarcity.  We will manage the situation. The trucks will ply the roads as we know how to go about it.”

The National Industrial Relations Officer added: “We have given him our word that we will manage the situation to ensure that there will be no fuel scarcity.  So people should not go for panic buying . People should not store fuel in their houses “.

It will be recalled  that Governor Wike has been fixing Federal roads neglected by the Federal Government.

The governor said that the State Government is committed to the growth of the state’s economy .
