The Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) have accused security operatives manning filling stations across the country of aggravating fuel scarcity.
It said security operatives who should have been deployed to fight Boko Haram, kidnappers and armed robbery that are making life unbearable for Nigerians are now working at filling stations, causing confusion there.
Its National President, Comrade Igwe Achese, who spoke in Port Harcourt yesterday at the end of the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of NUPENG, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to redeploy the security operatives fight terrorism and other crimes ravaging the country.
Achese also said the security challenges on oil pipelines and on the movement of fuel from one state to another are equally contributing to the fuel scarcity.
He blamed the refusal of the Federal Government to carry out Turn Around Maintenance (TAM) on the nation’s refineries for the past 16 years for contributing to the fuel scarcity. (The Nation)
