Leadership crisis: NUPENG fixes April 6 for election

The National Executive Council (NEC) of National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas (NUPENG) on Tuesday fixed April 6, 2018 for elections into the leadership position of the union.


The union came into public scrutiny last week when one of its arms, Petroleum Tanker Driver (PTD) raised alarm over elongation of the current leadership of the union led by Mr Achese Igwe.

The PTD had also called on NUPENG’s leadership to urgently set a process of convening the union’s national delegate conference on or before March 26, 2018.


Achese’s two terms tenure expired in October last year but extended for another three months ended in January, 2018 for preparation for the conference earlier slated for January 12, 2018.

The delegate conference however, did not hold.
