PENGASSAN calls for unity among oil workers

THE President of the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria, Mr Francis Johnson, has called for unity among workers to enable them to achieve the goals of protecting jobs and improving their welfare.

Johnson was quoted in a statement as saying this while addressing some members of the association after the 5th Triennial Delegates’ Conference of PENGASSAN Nigeria Gas Company in Abuja on Tuesday.

He said, “There is strength in unity and it is better we are united than being disunited. The unity of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, which comprises 11 subsidiaries, has been keeping the group standing.

“Other sectors now look up to the NNPC as a model for quality trade unionism and robust industrial relations system. We should all know that whatever affects the NNPC affects other sectors of the oil and gas,” he said.

Johnson advised all trade union leaders, especially PENGASSAN, to set aside politics and individual interests and make the NNPC and national interest a common goal.

He commended the NNPC management under the leadership of Dr Maikanti Baru as the group managing director for putting efforts in place to ensure the revamp of the refineries, adding that the corporation should work hard to ensure a financing system that would sustain the smooth running and maintenance of the refineries.
