The Nigerian Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) and Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) have declared total support for President Mohammadu Buhari’s removal of oil subsidy and increase in pump price. Rising from a two-day meeting in Calabar yesterday, the two unions said, “For us, our position is that the deregulation of the sector and opening of the market is a welcome development”.

Fielding questions from newsmen after a joint communiqué issued by the NUPENG Chairman- Comrade Igwe Achese and his PENGASSAN counterpart, Comrade Francis Olabode Johnson, the NUPENG Chairman said, “Deregulation of the sector is what we have been agitating for the past eight years or more. But each time we want to react, Nigerians want to live on the bedrock of lies and that has been our problem.
