Petroleum tanker drivers begin strike in Lagos

 

Petroleum Tanker Drivers in Lagos State have withdrawn their services as directed by the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG).

The state Chairman, NUPENG, Tayo Aboyeji confirmed the development in Lagos on Monday.

Aboyeji said that the strike began in the early hours of Monday, following negotiation breakdown between the state government and the union.

“Although, we met with the state government yesterday night, yet we could not reach an agreement. So, only the tanker drivers in Lagos State proceeded with the strike, because the environment is not conducive for tankers to operate,” he said.
