The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC has called on petroleum tanker drivers to call off its planned strike in the interest and welfare of Nigerians.
NNPC’s spokesman, Garbadeen Muhammad, made the call in a statement on Sunday in Abuja.
Petrol tanker drivers had planned to stop work over condition of roads in various parts of Nigeria used for the distribution of goods and services including petroleum products.
Reacting, Muhammad said while it is not the responsibility of the NNPC to build or rehabilitate roads, any disruption in the distribution of petroleum products will adversely affect the business of the NNPC.
According to him, the NNPC assures that in addition to on-going efforts by other government agencies, NNPC has initiated a process to a quick and effective solution to the road network challenges in the country.
“NNPC as a responsible corporate entity recognises the legitimate concerns of the tanker drivers.
“We, however, appeal to the leadership of the drivers to reconsider their decision in overall national interest.
“Accordingly, we urge petroleum tanker drivers to immediately call off the strike notice and give the current efforts by government and its agencies a chance to solve the challenges in the interest of all.
“We also wish to strongly advice Nigerians not to engage in panic buying of petroleum products as the NNPC has sufficient stock to last through this festive season and beyond,’’ he Muhammad said.
