Senior and junior oil workers hope to ground economic activities across Nigeria as they embark on a nationwide strike from December 15. Queues are likely to return to petrol stations. Many vehicles will be forced off the roads.
While government’s representatives negotiate with the striking unions, motorists and commuters in cities like Abuja and several towns across Nigeria writhe in pains.
PENGASSAN and NUPENG say they are protesting against the non-passage of the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) and government’s refusal to reduce the pump prices of fuel following the fall in crude prices.
