FG, Marketers Meets Today As Tanker Drivers Begin Strike


Members of the Nigerian Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO) have withdrawn their services nationwide in response to the directive from its leaders to resume strike today.

The Association explained that the decision to withdraw trucks from Petroleum product loading activities was due to the high operational costs in the industry.

NARTO is the umbrella Organisation of all commercial vehicle owners in Nigeria engaged in the haulage of petroleum products, general cargoes, and movement of passengers, within the country and the entire west Africa sub-region.

This move by NARTO could cripple the distribution of petrol and diesel across the country.

In a related development, the federal government through the downstream regulator and the petroleum ministry would meet with NARTO members and other parties today in Abuja to sort out the issues.
