As per Premium Times, the oil laborers are heading for a strike activity because of uncertain work issues with the central government, underfunding of the Petroleum Training Institute in Delta state and in addition the yet to be passed Petroleum Industry Bill PIB.

“We (the oil workers) have sufficient reasons, based on information available to us, to believe that the law makers are not prepared to pass the law, even as the state of the country’s petroleum industry has continued to deteriorate as a result of the absence of a regulatory and legal framework for the industry,”an official of the petroleum specialists body said.

The oil laborers are said to additionally be bothered over the choice of the administration of Total Nigeria to sack the PENGASSAN zonal Secretary in Port Harcourt and in addition the absence of advancement for specialists of the Petroleum Trust Development Fund (PTDF).
