In addition to the recent increase in the pump price of petrol to N150, Nigerians may be facing additional hardship of scarcity of the essential commodity following threat by the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers, NUPENG, to commence strike on Monday in Lagos.

In a statement issued by its National President, Williams Akporeha, and the General Secretary, Olawale Afolabi, NUPENG said the entire rank and file members of the union were deeply pained, frustrated and agonised by the barrage of challenges being consistently faced by petroleum tanker drivers in Lagos State.

The statement said they were left with no other option but to direct the withdrawal of their services in Lagos State until the Lagos State Government and other relevant stakeholders address these critical challenges.
