Scores of youths from oil bearing communities in Delta State under the aegis of Ijaw Youths Council, Itsekiri National Youths Council, National Association of Itsekiri Graduates, NAIG, Ndokwa Youths and Ika Youths at about 7:30 am Tuesday May 7, stormed the Warri Refining and Petrochemical Company, WRPC, Depot to protest perceived marginalizion of indigenes of host communities by the NNPC and alleged relocation of Nigerian Gas Marketing Company, NGMC to Abuja.                                                     

The youths who reportedly barricaded entrance to the NNPC facility, preventing going in and out, carried placards with inscriptions such as" NNPC stop casualization of host communities ' workers", "we are the goose that lay the golden egg", "NNPC must respect the Local Content Act", " Ijaw Youths Council demands community slots from NNPC", "National Association of Itsekiri Graduates  demand community slots from NNPC", "Ndokwa Youths demand community slots from NNPC", " Ika Youths demand community slots from NNPC", "Itsekiri National Youths Council demands community slots from NNPC", and host communities demand her fair share of slots in NNPC recruitment".

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Even though the federal government owned oil corporation has denied the alleged relocation of its gas company to Abuja, speculations have continued to mount among indigenes of NNPC subsidiary company that the relocation has indeed commenced.                                         

The protesters also emphatically stated that they want their people who are backup staff in NNPC and its subsidiaries to be converted as staff in the ongoing recruitment exercise by NNPC.
