Petroleum Tanker Drivers branch of the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers, NUPENG, has threatened to embark on a strike action if the Eleme Junction Road leading to the Port Harcourt Refinery, Rivers State, is not repaired.
Salimon Oladiti, National President of the Petroleum Tanker Drivers on September 3 in Lagos said that some members of the group had suffered various degrees of injuries as a result of accidents caused by the bad road.
“About 80 per cent of our members now avoid that area and come to Lagos to load products, the influx of tankers into Lagos over-stretch facilities in the West Zone of the group. Trucks fall on a daily basis and people are killed in the process and our members are also losing their trucks,” he said.
