10 March 2016, Abuja – The industrial action embarked upon on Tuesday night by oil workers across the country has been suspended.

Due to the suspension of the strike, activities have commenced at both the Abuja headquarters of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation and at all its subsidiaries in Nigeria, as well as at petrol stations operated by the national oil firm.

The strike was suspended on Thursday morning after emergency meetings with officials of the Federal Government on Wednesday night.

Oil workers under the aegis of the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas workers and their counterparts from the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria had declared an indefinite strike, which commenced at 12 midnight on Tuesday over issues pertaining the restructuring of the NNPC by the Federal Government.
