The Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria has called for the rehabilitation of the refineries, depots and other oil and gas facilities as the solutions to the current fuel scarcity in the country.
The senior staff trade union expressed concern at the current fuel scarcity and the attendant man-hours and energy Nigerians were losing to queuing in filling stations and considered this embarrassing to the nation, according to a statement by the Public Relations Officer, Fortune Obi, on Friday.
According to PENGASSAN when its leadership paid courtesy visits to the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency, Petroleum Equalisation Fund, Petroleum Training Development Fund, Petroleum and Pipelines Marketing Company, and the House of Representatives, all stakeholders in the industry must proffer enduring and sustainable ways to end the persistent fuel crises and prevent such from recurring.
While addressing the management of the agencies and the legislators during the visits, the PENGASSAN President, Olabode Johnson, lauded them for their various roles in ensuring that Nigerians were protected from feeling the pangs of the global price regime of petroleum products, collusion and restrictive trade practices harmful in the sector.
