Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) has implored the federal government to make the nation’s refineries work optimally to reduce the dependence on importation of petroleum products.
Its president, Comrade Igwe Achese, who made the call in Lagos, said NUPENG was ready to partner with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation to end the scarcity of fuel in the country.
“The federal government should also assist the marketers through the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to procure foreign exchange (Forex) to import petroleum products in order to cushion the biting effects of fuel scarcity,” he stated.
Achese urged the federal government to review the power sector privatisation which has become counter-productive and has led to serious job losses.
He expressed the union’s support for government’s fight against corruption and ensuring transparency in public business, especially as it affects the oil & gas industry.
