NNPC Commences Dialogue With PENGASSAN

The Management of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC on Friday opened discussion with the leadership of the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN).

The move is to stop the union members from going ahead with their proposed industrial ac­tion.

Group General Manager, Public Affairs Di­vision, NNPC, Garba Deen Muhammad, said in a statement in Abuja Friday that the Corpo­ration has commenced talks with the leader­ship of the Union to address their grievances.

Mohammed further said, NNPC has assured that it is doing everything possible to guaran­tee that the prevailing sanity in the supply and distribution of petroleum products across the country, which was achieved with the recent downstream liberation policy is sustained.

He however, cautioned members of the pub­lic from embarking on any form of panic buy­ing of petroleum products in anticipation of product scarcity due to the strike by members of the union.

He said the corporation has in stock enough products to satisfy local consumption for the next 45 days noting that there is no need for motorists and other users of petroleum prod­ucts to embark on frenzied wholesale purchase in anticipation of scarcity.
