Yenagoa — Nigeria will be shut down for three days, beginning today, over the non payment by Abuja and states of the N18,000 minimum wage that took months and years for Labour to wrench from the government on March 23.

The National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) and the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) directed all petroleum tanker drivers and filling stations countrywide to withdraw their services from 12 midnight on Tuesday until the warning strike ends on Friday.

It has set aside another three-day strike from Monday to Wednesday next week for oil and gas workers to withdraw their services in protest against treatment by Shell.
