The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC says its three refineries in Kaduna, Port Harcourt and Warri have resumed production of diesel and kerosene.
The Group General Manager, Public Affairs Division, Ndu Ughamadu, disclosed this yesterday in Abuja.
He said the resumption of refining of the products was expected to balance the disparity in the demand and supply of the products as being experienced in parts of the country.
Meanwhile the striking oil workers have succumbed to appeal from the Federal Government to suspend a three-day warning strike declared by the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG).
Nupeng had on wednesday commenced a warning strike over alleged failure of some oil corporations to implement collective bargaining agreement, casualisation of workers, job insecurity and abuses of extant labour laws by multinational oil companies operating in the country.
After a six- hour meeting with the government represented by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, NUPENG and representatives of the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) jointly agreed to suspend the warning strike.
