The Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), says its members are not responsible for the ongoing scarcity of fuel across the country.
The union’s president, Mr Igwe Achese, in a statement yesterday, blamed a cabal in the downstream sector for the shortage of petroleum products, adding that the cabal are sabotaging efforts to make products available through revamping of the nation’s four refineries.
Achese said Petroleum Tanker Drivers (PTD) branch of NUPENG are working and lifting products to every part of the country.
“NUPENG is not responsible for the present shortage of petroleum products being experienced nationwide.
“Our members in the Petroleum Tanker Drivers, PTD, branch of NUPENG are working and lifting products to the nooks and crannies of the country,” he said.
The statement also blamed the Federal Government for not adhering to its calls for the urgent need to resuscitate the nation’s four refineries.
