…As PTD Calls Off Planned Strike
The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has commended Petroleum Tanker Drivers’ maturity, patriotism, and steadfastness in answering the corporation’s call to call off its planned strike.
The planned strike is about the condition of roads in various parts of Nigeria which are used for the distribution of goods and services including petroleum products.
NNPC Spokesman Garba Deen Muhammad said “The Petroleum Tanker Drivers have called off their planned strike action. This development came after intensive engagement involving the leadership of the PTD, NNPC officials, and other government agencies.
However, even though it is not the responsibility of the NNPC to build or rehabilitate roads, any disruption in the distribution of petroleum products to different parts of Nigeria will adversely affect the business of the NNPC and endanger energy security, which the country has enjoyed for a long time now.
NNPC wishes to appreciate the maturity and patriotism of the leadership of the PTD and to also reiterate its resolve to actively participate in finding a quick and effective solution to the concerns raised by the PTD.
