Angry oil workers blame soldiers, protest today


The Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria on Wednesday  threatened showdown with the Federal Government over the massive  oil thefts  in the Niger Delta.

The President, PENGASSAN, Festus Osifo, in an interview with journalists in Abuja, blamed soldiers and other security agents protecting pipelines in the country for the continued oil theft.

He said the association would halt oil production if  the government failed to stop the theft.

He also disclosed that the  association would hold rallies simultaneously on Thursday (today) in Abuja, Warri, Kaduna and Lagos.

According to him, the rallies would   let the government know that PENGASSAN members were tired of producing oil that would be stolen eventually by thieves despite the protection of pipelines by security agencies.
