S/East residents lament NUPENG’s exclusion of Rivers in ongoing strike

Residents of the southeast have vehemently frowned at the strike action embarked upon by the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) necessitated by the demolition of a fuel station in Imo, on the directive of Governor Hope Uzodinma.
