The Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers, NUPENG has extended the 14-day ultimatum earlier given to the Federal Government by seven days.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Union’s General Secretary, Afolabi Olawale, on Thursday in Lagos State.
The statement noted that the decision of the union to give another ultimatum should not be misinterpreted as a sign of weakness.
It urged the government and all other concerned entities to take advantage of the extension to do the needful.
Recall that NUPENG had, on November 15, issued the 14-day ultimatum to embark on a nationwide strike due to non-implementation of an agreement earlier reached with the government.
