Strike action called by tanker drivers in Rivers State has triggered fuel scarcity, with long queues gradually building-up at different fuel stations in Port Harcourt, the state’s capital.
According to Channels TV,
The Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas workers (NUPENG) zonal chairman Port Harcourt branch, Comrade Godwin Eruba, said that the tanker drivers’ branch of NUPENG in the eastern zone was on strike over the poor conditions of some link roads in the zone.
He said that the strike was to get the government’s attention.
The refinery-Eleme and the Umuahia-Okigie roads are some of the link roads in very bad conditions that the group are asking the government to fix.
