Tanker drivers start fresh strike today Monday, Feb. 19, 2024

PETROLEUM products ranker drivers are all set to commence a gruelling nationwide strike today, Monday February 19, 2024.
Their parent union, National Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO) has duely informed the general secretary of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) of the strike.
NARTO national president Yusuf Lawal Othman says that NUPENG is aware of its protracted demands for negotiations over “appropriate and commensurate freight charges.”
Othman laments, however, that all the relevant authorities in the sector have paid no head.
He says the most adamant of all is the Major Energy Marketers’ Association of Nigeria, and NARTO had been left no other option than call off the petroleum products tanker drivers.
NARTO national headquarters notice on the matter (fascimile, above) is elaborate.
