The Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) has warned that increasing oil theft is forcing its members to lose jobs in Nigeria’s oil servicing industry.
This was disclosed by PENGASSAN President, Mr Festus Osifo, who made the call on Wednesday, in Abuja at a news conference heralding its new Advocacy Programme with the theme “Chasing Oil Thieves and Vandals out if Business”.
Osifo noted that due to oil theft, a lot of oil companies were shutting production and folding operations because they lacked sustenance and could not pay salaries.
The Union urged FG to take immediate action on the criminality, warning that if no progress was seen, it would be forced to withdraw its workforce.
