TUC Threatens Strike Over Petrol Scarcity

KanyiDaily had reported how the importation of adulterated petrol with methanol above Nigeria’s specification had caused scarcity and resulted in long queues in filling stations across the country.

Speaking with journalists on Sunday, February 20, TUC treasurer, Mohammad Yunusa said the union would direct its members to stop going to work if government fail to identify and punish those behind the fuel scarcity.

Yunusa said, “We will soon direct workers to stop going to work if the challenge of fuel scarcity across the country persists for the next few days.

“The congress also demanded that President Muhammadu Buhari should swing into action by identifying and punishing those who caused the scarcity that has brought untold hardship upon Nigerians.

“The union’s position is very clear. Those who caused this scarcity should be identified and punished very well.

“The position of SSASCGOC … is workers should stop going to work until there is enough fuel to take them to work.

“This is the way to do it. We are waiting for our centre to respond to our position but our position in SSASCGOC is that there is no need to go to work and when there is regular supply, then we will start going to work.”

KanyiDaily recalls that President Buhari had ordered that the four companies involved in the importation of adulterated fuel into the country must be held accountable for their actions.
