The Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) has suspended its planned nationwide strike.

PENGASSAN had announced the strike would commence 11:59pm today (Monday).

However, following the intervention of the Director of State Security Service, the Minister of Labour and Productivity, Chris Ngige and the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu, the union has backed down.

National PRO of PENGASSAN, Fortune Obi, confirmed this to Channels Television.

Obi stated that Ngige agreed to resolve anti-union posture by other indigenous companies and marginal field operators, while a meeting has been fixed for the second week of January 2018 to look at the issues.

The management of Neconde Energy Limited after the negotiation with the DSS, the Federal Government represented by the Minister of Labour and Minister of State for Petroleum, offered a letter of recall to the sacked employees of the company.

Neconde Energy Limited was represented by its Medical Director and legal consultants. The management also agreed to allow the union to exist in the company.
