Buhari Meets Leadership Of NUPENG, PENGASSAN

Buhari Meets Leadership Of NUPENG, PENGASSAN


President Muhammadu Buhari is presently in a closed-door meeting with the leadership of the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria and the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers at the State House.

The purpose of the meeting was not disclosed to journalists but it may be connected to the recent restructuring at the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation.

The meeting is attended by the Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, the Director General of the Department of State Services, Mr Lawal Daura and the Chief of Staff to the President, Mr Abba Kyari.

Earlier on March 8, 2016,  Dr. Kachikwu announced the restructuring of the NNPC,  however, oil workers kicked against the announcement and proceeded on industrial action.

The action was later suspended for 14 days, for government to dialogue with the unions and chart a way forward in the sector.

Meanwhile, queues still trail petrol stations across the country and this may form part of their discussion at the Presidential Villa.

Dr. Kachikwu is expected to brief the media on the outcome of the meeting.
