An industrial action called by tanker drivers in Rivers State has triggered fuel scarcity, with long queues gradually building up at different fuel stations in Port Harcourt, the state capital.

The short supply has forced most fuel stations in the city to stop selling what they have.

Those who spoke to Channels Television yesterday expressed worries that the cause of the situation is not clear.

In a telephone conversation, the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas workers (NUPENG) zonal chairman Port Harcourt branch, Comrade Godwin Eruba, said that the tanker drivers’ branch of NUPENG in the eastern zone was on strike over the poor conditions of some link roads in the zone. He said that the strike was to get the government’s attention.

The Refinery-Eleme Road in Rivers and the Umuahia-Okigwe Road in Abia/Imo are some of the link roads in very bad conditions that the union is asking the government to fix.
