The Nigerian Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas workers (NUPENG) has given the President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government 21 days to halt the mass sack of its members by major oil companies or face mass action from the union, reports Vanguard.

NUPENG made its position known in a communique issued by its Central Working Committee currently in a crucial meeting in Warri, Delta state.The oil workers body noted that over 3000 oil workers have been sacked by oil and servicing companies who are closing shops on account of the current economic recession and said it cannot stand it any longer.Igwe Achese, President of NUPENG who read the communiqué: “NUPENG will take all necessary action to drive home its demands if FG failed to act in 21 days. We are 100% in support against anti-corruption, but there must be respite for Nigerians.

“Right now, our members and even those in other sectors are no longer able to pay school fees for their children and even afford rents. Worse still, those being sacked now are so treated without commitment to proper terminal benefits.”
