The Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) has suspended its six-day strike. The body said the strike was called over unfriendly labour practices in the petroleum industry and the delay in the passage of the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) among others.

Its President, Francis Olabode Johnson told reporters after several hours of talks with the government, that the industrial action has been suspended to pave way for government and the International Oil Companies (IOCs) to implement the agreement reached during the two-day meeting.

The parley which started at the Ministry of Labour and Employment ended at about 2.30 am on Wednesday July 13, 2016 had in attendance, representatives of the Minister of Petroleum Resources, IOCs and the two unions in the oil and gas sector.
