Fuel scarcity: Tanker drivers to partner govt

The Petroleum Tanker Drivers (PTD) branch of the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas (NUPENG) has pledged to work with the Federal Government to end the ongoing fuel scarcity across the country.

Its National Chairman, Comrade Salimon Oladiti, said the union will work round the clock to ensure the delivery of petroleum products to filling stations across the country through out the festive period and beyond.

He expressed the readiness of PTD to support government at reducing the problem of fuel scarcity to the barest minimum through the engagement of tanker drivers to work round the clock, without weekends and holidays, lifting and discharging products around the country, until queues disappear from filling stations.

He praised the Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr. Ibe Kachukwu for the wonderful job he is doing to address the fuel scarcity. He assured that PTD will continue to support President Muhammadu Buhari in his efforts to make Nigeria a better society for all.

Comrade Oladiti urged  caution among  Tanker Drivers, particularly during the season, saying, much as more is expected from his members at this season, they should be safety conscious, given high vehicular traffic on the high way. He advised all road users to obey traffic rules and made road safety their watchword.

He ask stakeholders in  road transportation sector of the economy as well as oil marketers and Allied industries to join hands and support the Federal Government current efforts at cost effective supply and distribution of fuel products at lower price across the country, such that Resources are channeled to other meaningful and welfare pogrammes.
