Assets Sale: Oil Workers Warm Up for Strike

Nupeng/ Oil workers

Senior Oil Workers have threatened to cripple the country’s oil sector, if the presidency goes ahead with the proposed sale of some of the National Assets, to raise funds to reflate the economy from recession.

Threat by the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN), is  a follow-up to the opposition to the proposal by the Nigeria Labour Congress and Trade Union Congress.

PENGASSAN in a statement by its spokesman, Emmanuel Ojugbana in Lagos, said the proposal was ill-timed, unpatriotic, and would further impoverish Nigerians.

It asked the presidency to consider other options of raising funds to reflate the economy.

The proposed sale of some of the national assets already endorsed by the national economic council was spearheaded by Alhaji Aliko Dangote, the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Sanusi Mohammed, and the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
