NNPC GMD, Kachikwu meets NUPENG, PENGASSAN leaders on Monday

The concerns expressed by leaders of the two major oil workers’ unions, the Nigerian Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) and Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN), over indiscriminate workers’ sack at the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), has yield fruit.

The Group Managing Director, Dr. Ibe Emmanuel Kachikwu, has invited them for a meeting either on Monday or Tuesday.

A statement by the commission on Sunday issued by the commission said the GMD was inviting the union leaders to seek their cooperation on the ongoing reform in the sector as well as to assure them of being carried along in the process to avoid industrial crisis.

Since his assumption of office as the GMD about a fortnight ago, not less than 20 top management staff of the corporation had been laid off while more are still on the pending list. Irked by the development, the two unions in a statement signed by the President, PENGASSAN, Comrade Francis O. Johnson;

President, NUPENG, Comrade Igwe Achese; General Secretary, PENGASSAN, Comrade Bayo Olowoshile, and the acting General Secretary, NUPENG, Comrade Joseph Ogbebor, advised Buhari to call the GMD to order and also review his action for justice, equity and fairness.
