PENGASSAN lauds passage of PIGB by the Senate


The President of PENGASSAN, Olabode Johnson has lauded the passage of the Petroleum Industry Governance Bill (PIGB) by the Senate, urged the National Assembly to ensure that the remaining parts of the original PIB are passed to make Nigeria enjoy optimal benefit from its hydrocarbon resources.

The union said though it supports the initiative of the Federal Government to bring investors to revamp the refineries, it must open its books up to be accessed by all the stakeholders before decisions are made.

He added: “We seek that PENGASSAN and NUPENG should be carried along at all stages of the process to ensure that labour-related issues and job security is guaranteed. While we await the direction of the investors in the three refineries, we call on government to ensure immediate rehabilitation of obsolete equipment in the plants.”
