NUPENG to suspend fuel supply to LASG over N224m debt

Ambode-754x461The National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas (NUPENG) on Tuesday said that the union would stop supplying petroleum products to Lagos State Government (LASG) over N224 million debt.

Mr Tokunbo Korodo, the South-West Chairman of the union, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the debt arose from a contract given to the union by the LASG.

Korodo alleged that the N224 million was for payment for the supply of diesel and kerosene to LASG for direct labour projects in Ojodu which were executed between October 2014 and May 2015.

The union chairman said the contract was financed by Skye Bank and the bank had been asking for repayment of the loan.

“All efforts to prevail on state government to pay this money through our letter dated Dec. 2, 2015 which was acknowledged on Dec.4 proved abortive.

“Now, the union is left with no option than to stop supplying petroleum products to all parastatal agencies of Lagos State.

“From today on, if this is not effective, we may be forced to abandon Lagos as a whole to demand for this payment as Skye Bank is on our neck for this payment,” he said.

Korodo said that the union had reached out to the Governor, Deputy Governor, Secretary to the State Government and the State Commissioner of Transportation over the matter, but nothing was done.

The chairman said that all unions in the oil sector would participate in the action.

“If this payment is not made on time every union under oil workers will participate because an injury to one person of the union is injury to all members,” he said.

Officials of the state ministry of transportation were not ready to speak on the issue when contacted by a correspondent of NAN.

They said they were not permitted to speak to journalists.

    Work out a payment schedule fools. Supply fuel for the hapless population who are being screwed both ends. Your debt if genuine, must be accommodated in time. Don’t delay the recovery process by scrambling the commercial grounds for all.
