RIVERS | Tanker drivers threaten strike over deplorable road conditions

Petrol tanker drivers have again threatened to shut down operation in Rivers State.

The drivers are demanding urgent attention to the poor condition of access roads to tank farms in Rivers State.

The Chairman of Petroleum Tanker Drivers Unit of the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers, Lucky Etuoku, gave this indication in an interview with DAILY POST.

Etuoku said members of his union had continued to suffer loss of petrol tankers and products valued at millions due to the dilapidated roads.

He particularly picked on the situation around Eleme Junction, Akpajo and Oyigbo areas, which he said could be worst deep into the rainy seasons, if nothing was done.

Etuoku said, “We can’t continue like this, bad roads everywhere in Port Harcourt especially our operational areas.

“Go and take a look at all these roads I have mentioned to you, you will see what we are saying for yourself.

“We have been calling on government to come and do something about them but they have refused.”
