The present fuel scarcity is as a result of strike embarked upon by the Nigeria Union of Petrol and Natural Gas workers (NUPENG) over the poor state of Eleme road leading to the Port Harcourt refinery.
The union, on Monday embarked on strike to protest the poor state of the road, which they lament has become a death trap to motorists.
NUPENG said yesterday in Port Harcourt that it would continue with the strike until the federal government shows willingness to reconstruct the road.
National  Vice President of the union in the zone, Timothy Ogbu, said his members would not lift petroleum products until government embarks on reconstruction of the road.
β€œIf government calls us tomorrow and tell us what they intend to do about the road, we will call off the strike. But if there is nothing on ground and no promise is made, we can start loading from other states, but not Rivers. The way forward is for government to listen to us and fix the road so that our tankers can move freely,” he said.
