Tanker Drivers Threaten Strike Amid Fuel Scarcity

News - by RadioNow / Feb. 10th, 2022

Petroleum tankers drivers on Wednesday threatened to commence national strike if the Federal Government does not immediately rehabilitate the 21 critical roads captured in the N621 billion NNPC Road Infrastructure Tax Credit Scheme.

Salmon Oladiti, national chairman of the Petroleum Tankers Drivers revealed this at a press briefing in Abuja

He said that the union had earlier issued a firm and decisive ultimatum to the government on the deplorable state of the federal highways and the painful experiences of their members commuting across the country.

Mr Oladiti noted that the intended strike would happen at very short notice since the agreement on fixing 21 critical roads across the country through the Road Infrastructure Tax Credit Scheme of the NNPC reached in October 2021 is yet to be met.
