NAIG REAFFIRMS STAND TO SHUTDOWN CHEVRON AS ULTIMATUM DATE EXPIRES TODAY
Following the 28 days ultimatum given by the National Association of Itsekiri Graduates, NAIG, to Chevron to reclassify the Itsekiri Graduates of VTP5/OPT2 and VTP6 working as slaves in their purview which expires today Monday September 13, 2021, NAIG has reaffirmed their stand to shut down Chevron as soon as possible.
President of NAIG, Comrade Ben Eyitemi Eburajolo, in a statement made available to the Press today, Monday September 13, declared that members of the Association are ready to shutdown the perations of Chevron Nigeria Limited, CNL in Warri South, Warri South-West and Warri North Local Government Areas of Delta State, if the 146 members of NAIG in VTP5/OTP2 and VTP6 programmes are not engage as staff of Chevron Nigeria Limited.
Eburajolo, restated the association’s earlier position that the affected Itsekiri graduate trainees, were promised employment and asked to resign their former jobs by Chevron Nigeria Limited, CNL and were, “found competent in their various locations and none has violated any of the company’s laid down rules, regulations or safety procedures”.
According to him, the time difference between the VTP4, who were reclassified January 1st, 2015 and VTP5/OTP2, was just 6months and all the OTP2 were deplored to field, before the VTP4 to assist in the then acute personnel shortage in various offshore locations.
“On the Job Learning (OJL) has since been completed by both VTP5/OTP2 and VTP6.
“Crude oil price that they claimed was the reason for not reclassifying then, has since risen and stable to above $70/pbl. Meanwhile, VTP4 was reclassified with a price below $40/pbl.”, Eburajolo emphasized.
NAIG demanded: “It should be noted that their reclassification should be backdated to January 2016 and January 2017 for VTP5/OTP2 and VTP6 respectively; Resume Operation and Maintenance (O & M) training with employment immediately as enshrined in our Memorandum of Understanding (MoU); Community development in oil producing areas should resumed immediately and All Itsekiri host communities to CNL should be given electricity and portable drinking water”.
