The Nigerian Association of Road Transport owners (NARTO), have agreed to call off their nationwide strike and have promised to commence the lifting of petrol products with immediate effect.

This comes after two days of negotiations with major Energy Marketers Association of Nigeria (MEMAN) and other critical stakeholders in the industry for appropriate and commensurate freight rates for its operations.

NARTO appealed to its employees, who are members of Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), to show maximum cooperation, support and understanding to its collective efforts for continued sustainability of the petroleum haulage business and effective service delivery by ensuring adequate and immediate compliance with the directive.

Recall that narto had insisted on withdrawing its services nationwide, citing high operational costs and low freight rates.
