The oil workers say they are not on strike and are lifting available fuel.
Oil workers on Tuesday denied speculations that they are responsible for the growing queues in petrol stations in some parts of the country.
The workers under the Nigerian Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) stated that they are not on strike and “are ever ready to lift products”.
The workers claimed that many depots were empty with no products to be lifted.
In a statement signed by its acting General Secretary, Isaac Aberare, in Lagos, the worker’s union advised the Federal Government to evolve appropriate security measures to curb the activities of pipeline vandals.
According to the union, it is pertinent for the government to repair vandalised pipelines in Arepo Village, in Ogun State. The statement said that with the repairs, tanker drivers would begin to supply fuel to Lagos, Ibadan and Ilorin axis.
