Oil workers under the aegis of Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) have shut down operations of the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA) in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

The workers are protesting the alleged imposition of an acting Executive Secretary on the agency.

The Chairman of PENGASSAN, PPPRA Branch, Mr Victor Ononokpono, led the protest staged on Tuesday.

The protest is coming barely a week after the immediate past Executive Secretary of the PPPRA, Farouk Ahmed, was removed by the Presidency and arrival of a senior staff of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mrs Eunice Iyoyo, to resume as acting Executive Secretary.

Mr Ahmed had on Thursday, February 18, handed over management of the agency to the most senior official of the organisation and General Manager, Administration, Mr Moses Mbaba, as directed by the office of the Secretary to Government of the Federation.

The protesting oil workers are asking the Federal government to make a pronouncement to resolve the confusion the double nomination has caused, saying their protest would continue until the matter is resolved.
