NUPENG Warns Against Sale of Adulterated Products

Afam Aminu Chimezie, Onitsha

National Union of Petroleum and Gas Workers (NUPENG) has warned its members under Surface Tankers Kerosene Peddlers (SUKATEP) to always source their products from credible sources and avoid the temptation of engaging in product adulteration.

The warning was given yesterday by the SUKATEP National Chairman of NUPENG, Comrade Rotimi Benjamin while performing the maiden inauguration of Anambra State Executive of NUPENG in Onitsha.

Comrade Rotimi who was flanked by other national officers of NUPENG charged the new members to carry out their businesses accordingly to law and desist from sourcing their products from vandals.

He maintained that oil bunkering and vandalisation of pipelines were flourishing simply because some of the vandals have ready buyers of their stolen products and urged them to be focused in their business to avoid victimization.

In his remark, Port Harcourt Zonal Chairman of NUPENG, Comrade Godwin Eruba reminded the new state members of NUPENG the need to be good ambassadors of labour and emphasized that as a recognized labour union, NUPENG would always protect the interest of her members. He reiterated the need for workers to demand their rights at all times.

In an acceptance speech the new state chairman of NUPENG, SUTAKEP unit, Comrade Eric Ugwummadu, however, promised to join in the fight against adulterated kerosene product, adding that the protection of members in their legitimate business would be one of his major priorities.
