NUPENG Ask FG, State Govts To Arrest Tanker Drivers Seen On Highway After 6p.m

Leadership of the Nigerian Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers, NUPENG, has advised the federal and state governments to arrest tanker drivers caught on the highway after 6p.m, saying, it is against the rule of the union.
NUPENG said the arrest and prosecution of erring tanker drivers would reduce the incessant tanker fire disasters on the highway.
The Union spoke through both the Zonal Chairman of the Independent Marketers branch of NUPENG Comrade Olayemi Abayomi and the National Auditor, Comrade Thompson Ogbodo on the sidelines of the handing over ceremony of Independent Marketers Branch of NUPENG held in Abeokuta, weekend.
Speaking with newsmen after the meeting, Mr. Abayomi said the recent fire disaster which occurred at the Otedola link bridge in Lagos, could have been avoided and reduced to the barest minimum if tanker drivers adhere strictly to the rules and regulations of the Union.
