Fuel shortage: tanker drivers end strike, NUPENG

Border Communities hit by fuel scarcity.fw
In Rivers State, the strike by the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers and Petrol Tanker Drivers has been called off.
This followed a conference that the unions and other interested parties attended and was called by the state commissioner of police, Friday Eboka.
The Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources attended the conference as well.
This was said in a statement that Chinda Ejims, who was speaking on behalf of the PTD and the Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority, signed.
The chairs of the state’s Emuhua, Ikwerre, and Etche Local Government Areas were also signatories.
The PTD-NUPENG had complained about operatives from the police, EFCC, army, and taskforce working in the three LGAs harassing, extorting, and seizing members’ trucks.
The Commissioner of Police, Rivers State Command, directed the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Department of Operations, to establish a task force headed by an officer not below the rank of Superintendent of Police, to embark on the arrest of all illegal taskforces operating under the guise of the respective Local Government Areas, according to the communique.
The Rivers State Command Commissioner of Police pleaded with the Executive Chairmen of the various Local Government Areas to enforce the Rivers State Traffic Law with a human face.
In the future, PTD-NUPENG was urged to inform its members of the necessity of reporting any mechanical failure of their trucks to the closest police station in the event that the repairs would take longer than the legally permitted six hours.
That the PTD-NUPENG appoint a member of the Union into the State taskforce on illicit bunkering operations to ensure prompt and open reporting of samples of items thought to come from illegal bunkering activities.
All trucks with a clean bill of health according to the report from the Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority are to be unconditionally released on Friday, according to the commissioner of police for the state of Rivers, while those whose products failed the test will have their owners prosecuted once the investigation is complete.
The Rivers State Command Commissioner of Police noted that the EFCC and the Nigerian Army, two sister security agencies that were not represented at the meeting, would be informed of the stakeholders meeting’s decision.
That the IGP taskforce on unlawful bunkering task force truck issue has been brought up, and the IGP has vowed to become involved to ensure justice is done.
The PTD-NUPENG has vowed to call off their strike on September 15th, 2022, following any necessary consultation over the meeting’s outcome.
