The Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) says its petroleum tanker drivers had been mobilised to ensure no movement of petroleum tankers as their nationwide strike begins on Monday.
Tokunbo Korodo, the South-West Chairman of NUPENG Lagos Council, made the assertion on Sunday in an interview in Lagos.
According to him, all the tanker drivers have abandoned their trucks in respect of the indefinite strike which will begin on Monday unless the Federal Government intervenes.
Meanwhile, President of the Nigeria Labour Congress Ayuba Waba says until the Nigerian Government addresses the issue of inequality, the social vices witnessed in many states will remain on the increase.
He came up with this at Umuahia during the ground breaking ceremony for the permanent labour house at Ogurube lay out in Umuahia.
