PENGASSAN flays ExxonMobil over disengagement of staff
The Akwa Ibom State branch of Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) yesterday decried the incessant sack of ExxonMobil staff by its management.
Speaking with journalists after its congress and protest march held at Mobil Producing Nigeria in Lagos, the union passed a vote of no confidence on the Managing Director of the oil giant, Mr. Paul McGrath.
The National Deputy President of the association, Jude Chidinwaogu said the position taken was the climax of PENGASSAN’S Congress and protest march held at the Ibeno, Lagos gate of the company.
He however, alleged that the incessant sack by ExxonMobil management only affected Nigerians, while the expatriate staff were not affected, stressing that the company’s action negates the Nigerian local content law.
