NUPENG scribe Afolabi can’t take credit for PTD health insurance scheme –  Osesua 

The National Chairman of Petroleum Tanker Drivers (PTD) Branch of NUPENG, Comrade Lucky Osesua, has cautioned drivers across the 4 zones of the union not to be taken in by the gambit of the General Secretary of NUPENG, Afolabi Olawale, on the reintroduction and launch of the health insurance scheme.

Osesua said that he was the brain behind the programme, which he had earlier introduced to the drivers as the Branch Chairman.

A statement signed by Comrade Lucky Osesua and Comrade Humble Obinna Power for National Chairman and National Secretary respectively, urged PTD members to critically assess the current situations instead of falling for Afolabi’s rhetoric in the mainstream and social media.

He advised the PTD members to take informed decisions about their welfare, health, life, wellbeing and livelihoods and not allow anyone to negatively alter their destinies by flaunting a caricature of the original idea.

He said the scheme under his leadership sought to address the welfare, well-being, life and livelihoods of all members of the Branch who traverse the length and breadth of the country on wheels.

“The attention of the National leadership of the Petroleum Tanker Drivers (PTD) Branch of Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) has been drawn to the offer of the General Secretary of the Union, Afolabi Olawale and the President, Williams Akporeha to launch and reintroduce an existing health insurance scheme which was introduced by me earlier in my tenure, but unfortunately the duo have deliberately manipulated the health insurance scheme, making it so obnoxious for our members to key into, due to the regime of multiple taxes, levies and rates being introduced at various depots and loading stations.
