The leadership of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum & Natural Gas workers (NUPENG) has debunked alleged insinuations of tenure elongation of its National Executive Council as reported in some national dailies.
The leadership of the Union while reacting against the 21-day ultimatum from few of the aggrieved members, maintained that there was no iota of truth in the statement, saying the Union is working assiduously to conduct its National Delegates Conference in April, 2018.
In the statement by NUPENG General Secretary, Comrade Joseph Ogbebor, made available to LEADERSHIP in Lagos, NUPENG claimed “that at the last Central Working Committee (CWC), National Executive Council (NEC) meetings in December 3 and 4, respectively in 2017, there was nothing like a heated debate but a vote of confidence passed on the leadership.
It was at that meeting an extension of 90 days was ratified by the NEC to prepare for a smooth transition.”
The Union reiterated that the utterances from the Petroleum Tanker Drivers Branch of NUPENG is a family issue which is normal in labour parlance and in every facets of our society and was due to a breakdown in communication which is been addressed.
Ogbebor stated that there is no crack in NUPENG, saying “no division, no crisis of any kind in the Union as we remain strong, united and resolute.
“The issue of the global oil glut, insecurity has adversely affected the Union in depletion of membership strength thus affected our finances and organizing a National Delegates Conference is therefore not a tea party.”
Likewise, NUPENG stated that the various Committees, put in place for smooth election, the Logistics, Accreditation and Resolutions are working round the clock to give the Union members a befitting election.
