with the ministry of labour, Neconde Energy and the ministry of state
for petroleum resources.

practices against some of its members by Indigenous Oil firms. The
management of Neconde Energy Limited represented by its Medical Director
and legal consultants offered a letter of recall to the sacked
employees of the company.

According to Pengassan National PRO, Fortune Obi, Minister of Labour
Chris Ngige, agreed to endeavour to resolve anti-union posture by other
indigenous companies and marginal field operators.
