Government’s daytime operational restriction not for petroleum tankers – NUPENG

-

- Advertisment -

The National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers, NUPENG, has said petroleum tankers are not affected by the Lagos State Government’s daytime operational restriction.

Southwest Chairman of the union, Tokunbo Korodo, said in Lagos that the ban had nothing to do with petroleum tankers, saying petroleum tankers were not captured by the law, and they could deliver products to any destination any time.

Korodo who said tankers were working round the clock to lift petroleum products and deliver at designated filling stations nationwide, believed the ban was to reduce incessant accidents caused by articulated vehicles on Lagos roads.

The state government had on September six, restricted the movement of heavy duty vehicles within the metropolis to between nine in the evening and six in the morning, following the recent Ojuelegba trailer accident which claimed three lives.

Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Transportation, Oluseyi Whenu, said the movement of articulated vehicles contravened Sections of the Traffic Law, warning that government would henceforth impound vehicles and the owners fined whenever there was a breach of the restriction order.
