AVIATION workers will down tools from midnight today in compliance with the call for an industrial action by Labour.

Minister of State, Aviation, Hadi Sirika

The strike is to press the government for the N30,000 minimum wage request.

The Federal Government has proposed N24,000 minimum wage, but the governors say they can pay only N22,500

The strike plan has already been stopped by the Industrial Court which on Friday upheld the government’s ex parte application.

The Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) yesterday said there was enough supply of products.

National President of the National Union of Air Transport Employers (NUATE) Ben Nnabue said: “All flights operating into and out of Nigerian airports shall be affected by this industrial action.”

NNPC spokesperson Ndu Ughamadu said the firm has a stock of petroleum products to sustain a minimum of 39 days sufficiency and about 25 days availability on land.

Ughamadu said “motorists and other consumers of petroleum products are assured of adequate stock to meet their energy needs”.

”Nigerians should remain vigilant and volunteer information to the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), the industry regulator or to any law enforcement agency around them, on any station that attempts to take advantage of any prevailing situation in the country at the expense of the consumers.”
