NUPENG Suspends Proposed Strike, Meets with FG Today
The union, which met with a federal government delegation behind closed doors in Lagos yesterday agreed to reconvene in Abuja to continue negotiations to resolve the dispute over non-payment of subsidy arrears to some fuel marketers.
But the situation in Abuja remains unchanged as the strike embarked upon by NUPENG is biting hard and no filling station was selling fuel to motorists yesterday.
President of the union, Comrade Achese Igwe, told media in a telephone interview yesterday, that NUPENG is willing to dialogue with the government and the outcome of today’s meeting will determine whether the union would go ahead with its nationwide strike.
He said, “We will attend the meeting and the interest of the masses will be considered first in our decisions. The interest of the masses has always been our concern whenever we want to take any action.”
NUPENG had earlier signified its intention to begin a nationwide strike today if the Federal Government failed to remit subsidy money to some fuel marketers.
