The Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) has suspended its nationwide strike with immediate effect, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.


The oil workers union suspended the strike at the end of its National Executive Council Meeting, which was called to review offers made by government during days of negotiations.

The union had earlier met with the Minister of Labour and Productivity, Chris Ngige.

Details of the agreements reached by the parties are sketchy at this time.

The unions had on July 7 declared a strike over “unresolved issues” affecting the smooth operation of the oil and gas industry.

The acting general secretary of PENGASSAN, Lumumba Okugbawa, had said on Tuesday that some of the association’s demands bordered on issues that could strengthen the oil and gas industry and the country’s economy.
