The Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria-PENGASSAN has called on the Federal Government to pay all debts owed oil marketers to avert job losses and promote the growth of the oil and gas industry.
PENGASSAN made the call in reaction to the threat by the marketers to embark on the retrenchment of their employees if the government refused to settle the over N720 billion subsidy arrears.
The association in a statement by its National Public Relations Officer, Fortune Obi said if the government is genuinely interested in the growth of the downstream sector and wants to attract more investments in the sector, then it should pay the debts owed the marketers.
