Protests in Kaduna State: Oil union puts members on red alert
The National Leadership of National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas (NUPENG), has warned the Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai, against attack on any members of the organized Labour, saying that the union will not hesitate to call on all its members throughout the nation for a total shut down of all our services in the upstream, mid-stream and downstream sectors of the oil and gas industry.
The union in a statement, also urged the Federal Government to immediately call the State Governor to order before his arrogance and power drunk ego further push the situation into horrendous calamity as he has been doing in all issues relating to human lives and wellbeing.
“Consequently, the Union reiterates that no Labour Leaders or workers as the case may be, be harmed, harassed, maimed, humiliated or victimized during this 5-day peaceful protests in the State. Our Union is raising this alarm following the very reliable report of the clandestine move of Governor Nasir El-Rufai to hurt and put the lives of NLC President,Comrade Ayuba Wabba and other Labour Leaders to danger in his usual blind egotistical style of running government in the State
“In the light of the above, we are therefore putting all NUPENG members nationwide on red alert and may at very short notice of five hours call for a nationwide industrial action if situation arises”
