The Independent Marketers branch of the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) has called for total reform of the oil and gas sector in the country.

The called was made by NUPENG Independent Marketers’ National Chairman, Mr. Ogbodo Thompson, during the 3rd quadrennial conference of the body on Sunday in Benin.

He said this was the best possible way to address the corruption that was impeding the growth of the sector.

``President Buhari must be cautious of the `racket’ and those who had formed themselves into `cabals’ in the sector in order to achieve maximum result. There must be total reform in the oil and gas sector. Needless to say that we know that it is difficult and could take a longer time to investigate organisations where syndicates or cabals operate.

``This is because members of such syndicates or cabals have to be identified first; until such persons are identified, not much can be realised and we cannot move forward. My advice to the current administration is to conduct thorough investigation and carry out a reform in the NNPC to propel growth of the nation’s economy.

``I believe our pipelines will work, subsidy or no subsidy, private depots or no private depots; I believe strongly that this administration can give the right leadership to achieve corruption-free NNPC. Millions of Nigerians have been denied decent living standard for too long,’’ he said.

The leadership of NUPENG also tasked the Independent marketers to strive to achieve the needed change in the energy sector.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Thompson, along with members of the executive, returned unopposed as representatives during the association’s just concluded election. (NAN)
