It has been a hectic period for almost all citizens of Nigeria as the major oil marketers association went on strike following the refusal of the federal government to pay up the remaining 200bn as promised a few weeks back.
This actually led to an increase in the market price of all items sold in Nigeria, even dust bin. for example, people who actually paid N50 for a short distance movement on keke (tricycle) now had to pay like N120 for the same distance or remain stationary or even walk down if they can.
However, the cry of the innocent people of Nigeria to God seems to have been answered as information reaching us has just confirmed an agreement between the association of major oil marketers and the federal government of Nigeria to "begin lifting petroleum products across the length of the nation in 6 hours period".
Read the report:
According to Magnus Abe, chairman of the senate committee on petroleum resources, the resolution was reached after a meeting of MOMAN and the committee with Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, minister of finance and coordinating minister for the economy; Joseph Dawha,group managing director of the Nigeria national petroleum corporation (NNPC) and major stakeholders in the oil and gas sector. Also, the Nigeria union of petroleum and natural gas workers (NUPENG) and the petroleum and natural gas senior staff association (PENGASSAN) have suspended their industrial actions.
So now i guess everyone is happy because things will henceforth, begin to look good for us all again.
